old songs...

this morning my brother went about getting ready for work humming happily along...what song? ROCKY TOP???? That's OOOOOOLLLLLDDD!!! I was thinking about old songs, they always conjure up deep feelings sometimes happy and sometimes not, but I think this is part of how we grow...having a non-threatening place to examine a moment from.


I don't know if you know what I mean, I only know there are some songs that have brought me through some of the darkest days imaginable and some songs that just hearing the opening notes to can make me want to dance...

Flying Eagle Woman, these must bring back some memories for you, both happy and sad. But the bad days are over, and if you have to do one thing in your day, then that is too be happy!
Tradition runs long and deep for you, but those days have long gone, I hope! I'm still waiting to hear more of your stories! Hope that you have some good one's lined up for Halloween!
Big hugs!

Yeah I know what you mean,I believe that all little children have this ability, but in a world that makes us grow up fast to fulfill standarts that others created there isn´t enough room for purity and spontaneity.

I know exactly what you mean. In fact, I recently told each of my best friends that I was burning CDs for them of songs that will always remind me of them and things we've done. Then I demanded them to do the same for me...aren't I a good friend? Of course, I have the playlists, but haven't managed to burn the CDs themselves yet. Life keeps getting in the way.
