"In May 2011, Nancy and I traveled to Vancouver with this book's cowriter to go back and visit the places we'd lived and worked in our early days….And though the visit brought back a flood of memories of my early romantic life, of the start of Heart, of our five-year plan, my strongest memory was of the music. It had been sitting outside the cottage by the creek, where I had written those "Dreamboat Annie" songs that in the decades since had taken on a life of their own. I had stood in these woods, with a soul full of love, and played my flute, accompanied by the sound of the gurgling brook. In that earlier version of Ann, those songs had existed only as a glimmer of a dream in a young girl's imagination. I had sung their words countless times onstage, but for a moment that day in Vancouver, they came to my lips as spoken words, without melody, a credo of sorts: "Cold, late night so long ago, when I was not so strong, you know." I hadn't written the songs back then, even though many came straight from my life, from my diaries, from my phone calls with my mother, from my nights of passion with the first man I loved. I hadn't written the songs back then because I never do. The songs had written me." --Ann Wilson fr. "Kicking & Dreaming"
