I have always drawn inspiration from KISS. Seeing items like this remind me a lot of high school. Back to the days of being a wide eyed dreamer, and truly believing nothing was impossible. Items like this inspired me to start my own journals of creative projects. Song lyrics, sketches, rough ideas for stories or comic books. Always inspired by Gene, I would strive to write in the coolest penmanship I could muster, time stamping each page, and signing the finished product with my own, much practiced “rock star” signature. Looking back, I really wish my friends and I would have had the guts to start a KISS Fanzine back in the day. I bet that would have been a blast.
I’m sure we all have notebooks filled with our dreams stored somewhere from our life. Maybe someday, we can go back and nudge the younger us, to take that step, to not be afraid, and just do it…whatever ‘it’ may be…
I will never regret one day being a KISS fan.
Good memories from a simpler time.
Have a good weekend everyone…
*Disclaimer. My constant use of ellipsis (…) in any of my post or handwritten notes, came to life back then, during those days of being a dreamer.
A little trait, inspired by Gene from the “Notes” of KISS ALIVE!, when I was 15.
