You know, the older I get, the more I love the past. I guess that is a normal progression. We want to remember the past because that was our life. Friday at work, I sang about 20 songs from the past--mostly from the 30's to the 60's. I find that people really enjoy these old songs. I'm sure they bring back special memories. I sang songs like "Fly Me To The Moon", "Stormy Weather", "Misty", "Someone To Watch Over Me" and songs from Carole King, like "Home Again" and "Where You Lead." I'm in love with jazz right now. And I was in O'Charley's last week, and they had jazz playing in the background. I asked the young waitress if she liked the music and she said, "Yes, it was very soothing." Of course, she had never heard these songs before they started playing at her restaurant. I think jazz is coming back. My musician friend sings in supper clubs, etc., and all she is singing is jazz right now. That's what people want. And, even though I don't really watch "Glee", I have heard they are featuring songs from the past like "Maybe This Time." Are you loving all the old songs?
I have always loved lace. I guess that's why I started tatting--so I could make lace. Now, I am noticing lace on more and more blogs and on more and more Etsy sites. I need to make more time to visit antique shops so I can look for old handmade lace. The past is our heritage. Isn't it interesting how these new inventions (like the internet) can help keep the past alive. I think visiting blogs has replaced my love for magazines. I use to buy so many magazines, but why do I need to when I have so many thoughts and ideas from others like you? So, now I think I'll go back to visit more of your blogs for a little while . . . .
