Do you remember record players? This was my Dad’s, but it has lived with us for a few years now. It’s good that we kept our old albums because once in awhile, we’ll dust one off and reminisce into the past. Those moments are surreal, evoking great memories and creating new ones. We have a wide variety of nostalgia sitting in our closet on the top shelf…from The Beatles, Elvis, Asleep at the Wheel, The Rolling Stones, Barbara Streisand, Santana, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, Marshall Tucker Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Hank Williams, Jr., Beach Boys, The Eagles, Elton John, Johnny Cash, and the list continues…

Ode to Music

Listen to the music
let it touch your soul
let it bring you joy
let it make you whole

Listen to the music
let it stir emotions
let it make you sigh
let it cleanse like oceans

Let the music be in you
in your heart, in your mind
Any genre that moves you
in life is well-timed

Does anyone else own an LP? I think we’ll keep ours for awhile. 🙂

 

 

 


 

Summertime

colors 3

Soft serve on a cone
Hot dogs at the fair
Popcorn at the movies
Adventures if we dare
Bikes on the streets
Longer days to play
Sunscreen on our noses
for a hike on any day
Surfers on a wave
Towels on the sand
Parties in the pools
Dancing to the band
Moonlit strolls for lovers
Cool drinks with lime
Oh, how we love you
Sweet, sweet Summertime

Duet

Our dance
continues
beneath
the sheets

where our
movements

stay in sync

taking turns
as conductor,
we never
miss
a beat

this melody
we composed
has us only
wanting more

leading to
a beautiful
crescendo,

absolutely
loving

the score

Dizzy in my head

I was cleaning up the dishes from dinner,
listening to a cd our son had made for us
and this song started playing.
My hubby came in,
took my hand
and we danced in the kitchen.

I know this sounds corny
and we sound old,
but we’re really not that old! 
We both love to dance;
we used to go dancing all the time,

bk (before kids). Needless to say,
it’s been awhile,

so this was just a nice moment.

“You make me smile like the sun, fall outta bed
Sing like a bird,
Dizzy in my head
Spin like a record,
Crazy on a Sunday night
You make me dance like fool,
Forget how to breathe
Shine like gold,
Buzz like a bee
Just the thought of you can drive me wild
Oh, you make me smile”

I hope you enjoyed this song, too,
and I hope you get the chance to dance real soon. ♥


Someone Like You

Here’s another musical intermission featuring Adele…
It’s a tearjerker, so make sure you have tissue nearby.
For those of us who have had our hearts broken,
this is one song we can relate to.
What amazes me is this performance is only her and the piano.
The ending is honest and emotional.
I hope you enjoy and as always,
thanks so much for stopping by! ♥
