Yesterday we had a beautiful sunny afternoon which allowed me the pleasure of pulling weeds for a bit. It felt good, wish I could do more. This morning it’s rainy, and as I type this, I’m listening to old tunes that take me back to both the good times and the hard times in my life. I remember times when only tuning out everything else and cranking the volume up high and listening to music could get me through the day.
To me, music is magical; healing, empowering, soothing, energizing, and sometimes, when I’m struggling, it makes me cry, hard, but it’s always a good thing. Thankful both mom and dad loved music, ensured it was part of our lives, not just listening, but music lessons and concerts. While I still enjoy the types of music they enjoyed, I am a product of my generation and enjoy good old rock and roll the most.
What got me on this kick today? This post titled Afterglow written by an adoptive dad from Wales. It’s worth the time, it’s also the trigger why I’m in the midst of listening to tunes from my youth and early adulthood, which is always a good thing.
So that’s what’s happening with me today – what’s up with you? Consider this an open thread, a place just to be, chat, or drop a post you’ve especially enjoyed.
