"You and I travel to the beat of a different drum
Oh can’t you tell by the way I run
Every time you make eyes at me…"

But honey child I’ve got my doubts
You can’t see the forest for the trees"

Legendary vocalist Linda Ronstadt shares with Fresh Air her thoughts on “serial monogamy” and why she never got married:

The culture supports serial monogamy and I think I had plenty of that, and I think I was reasonably monogamous in a serial way, but I’m not a good compromiser. I think I don’t have the knack for the kind of compromise. I admire people’s marriages and I think it’s a wonderful thing to have, but I don’t think it’s the only way to live, I think there are many ways to live and many ways to establish intimate support in your life that can be from family or friends or great roommate that you like. It doesn’t have to be someone you’re sleeping with. I figured that out pretty early on that was sort of how I felt. I was trying to sing, I was never trying to get married. I think you have to be pretty deliberate about getting married.

Her memoir “Simple Dreams” is out today. You can read an excerpt of it on the interview page.

Have you heard of the mystery of the sailing stones? It’s not a Hardy Boys novel — it’s the strange phenomenon of rocks leaving zig-zagging tracks across Death Valley.

Well, they solved the mystery at last.
