I have just visited a song on youtube that I first heard forty or so years ago. There was a book, a movie and the music…I thought it was the ultimate experience and wondered how anyone could have been so accurate about what was happening inside my teen head.
The book was brilliantly witty and the movie summed it all up perfectly…I wrote an A+ essay for school and hung around the record store to get my copy of the album with money I had saved, begged for or stolen.
Listening to it just now I was flooded with all those memories of yesteryear. Clear recollections of my neophyte youth with untutored expectations wandered beaming through my head. For aeons this rendition of adolescence remained the meter by which I measured any worth.
So much has changed since then…so much has grown and developed…the world is a far brighter bigger place than I envisioned then.
What was that music book and movie? Hardly matters really has no bearing on todays world save to say they awoke something wonderful in me all those years ago; inspired me perhaps? Maybe they have stirred the pot again this time to even greater joys. . .?
