Sweet, sweet evening

Okay, so I took my mom to see Jersey Boys last night and my official review is: STINKIN’ AMAZING! Those of you that know me well know that I should have been born about 30 years earlier… I’ve been told easily a hundred times in my life that I’m an “old soul” and I do agree in terms of music. My favorite band of all time is The Drifters and Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons are a very close second. How is this possible? After all, I’m a child of the 80s… MTV and big hair bands. I’ve done some soul searching and I’ve found the source: Michael J. Fox. Nope, not kidding. If you take Back to the Future and Stand By Me, two movies I watched in excess as a kid, then you can find the source of my addiction. I love the idea of a “simpler” time. I love the idea of pure music for music and not for money. I love the voices that aren’t digitally enhanced. I love the 50s. And for those of you that don’t, I’ve added 5 of my favorite songs to the site and if you can listen to them without smiling, I don’t know what to say.

If you share the same love of music that I do, then try to see Jersey Boys before it leaves town. It does tell the true story of the group which involves quite a bit of language, so don’t take little kids. But kids wouldn’t really appreciate it anyway, would they?
And for the picture of the day:I went out and hiked through a crazy overgrown area to get to Lake Ray Roberts today. And even though I took some beautiful pictures of the lake and dragonflys, this one is my favorite. I was climbing when I noticed this blue thread just wrapped around a branch. It made me think about two things: 1. we tend to leave a mark on everything and everyone we encounter 2. sometimes I wish I could leave a trail of thread or crumbs to remind me how to get back to the places and times that make me happy.
