1979 Neil Diamond
where was I in '79?
had a new baby and a two year old, was working part-time in a customer service center at the local mall (it was awful), we had just bought a new to us house and were happily making it our home, we had friends next door and family nearby and I remember looking out the bedroom window one snowy November as my hubby and son were building his first snowman and my baby girl was sleeping next to me and thought; life does not get any better than this. And I was right. Where were you?
The sun has arrived at the equator on it's journey south for the winter. I find it a most happy time of year...like the changing of the guard. And if it were up to me the New Year would start with Autumn. The crisp-cool temperatures, the crisp-cool apples, sweet hot lattes and pumpkin pie, cinnamon sticks and vanilla sugar, falling leaves and vivid colours, football and the world series, college dreams and long lost sweet-hearts, anticipation and celebration, little goblins, quilts, "Moondance," bleachers and stolen kisses, marching bands, mums and pumpkins, gourds, corn, spider webs (ack!), fire-pits, corn mazes, brilliant skies, darker nights, shorter days (ick!), summer memories and on and on...
September morn...sometimes it still can make me feel that way.
