Back to my Youth

On my way back from taking my son to school I had a moment.
Not that kind of moment. A 'wow I used to be young' one.

On the radio came the song, Roxanne

I was back ... just that quick ... to my youth.

Here I was, a 50ish old lady ... rocking out ... in my car ... in the spitty rain ... while those other youths ... listened to what ever it is they listen to now. Just kidding ... I actually like some of the new tunes.

Man, it was great being young and having those memories of when 'it' came out. All of you older youths ... think back to when you heard that song ... that Summer ... that year ...

Now, I have to figure out what happened since then ... cause, I'm old now.

Oh, well through the wrinkles, I'm still that 19 year old girl listening to rock and roll. At least my old age hasn't taken away those memories ... not yet.

Damn life is good isn't it !!!

Ah yes, you can hear a song and remember just where you were and just what life felt like.
Even when you can't remember where you left your car an hour earlier!!

I love hearing old songs that rock me and bring me back to youth. Pretty much that's all I listen to, classic rock station and my CDs. I don't like most of the new stuff - egad, I'm my parents!

Life is damn good JC! I had a moment like that today when I heard Copacabana! That was the very first 45 single I ever bought.

"Brown Eyed Girl" has the same effect on me! :-)

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
