Musical slices

Tubing down St. Joe's River......a drink in one hand, suntan lotion in the other...surrounded by "my" girls.
                                                   "All Summer Long" Kid Rock
My John on keyboard, Mike on drums, Johnny on guitar, Julie singing .. heart swelling with love and pride.                                  "Let it Be" The Beatles 

My sister, my daughter, my niece, windblown hair, sunshine/ laughter....loud obnoxious singing/ Missouri.
                                                 "Bohemian Rhapsody" Queen
My dad singing old love song, his sheepish grin/ mom getting on New Years Eve in Mo.
                                                "That's Amore" by Dean Martin 
My friends/ a screen porch/ wee hours of the morning....singing, dancing, and laughing  and crying.                                    "You're So Vain" Carly Simon

In a matter of moments we all have the power to bring back those moments in time, the feelings, the pictures, the memories in their entirety. Hundreds/thousands.... tiny slices of life made possible to all of us by the sweet gift of music. 


  1. Before I read your post, I was just discussing with Pete some of our favorite songs. very clever

  2. "tiny slices of life made possible to all of us by the sweet gift of music."

  3. Can you take me higher..... Higher by Creed---"our song" Love how music can help us recall all the slices of our lives for us. Awesome job--love this!

  4. Love this slice! So true that music has a way of doing that- taking you back to a moment in your life. Gives me an idea for a future slice. Thanks, Darlene!
