Feelings that come back are feelings that never went away. ~ Anonymous

I am celebrating the big 6-0 in October.  I can’t believe it! Well these days I can believe it because my body is always coming up with a new ache, or pain, or aliment to entertain me.  Sometimes I walk into a room and I forget why. If someone interrupts me mid-thought, that thought could be lost forever or until I remember it at a much later – totally unrelated time.

But tonight I was a time traveler.  As I sat in the audience and the Spinners took the stage I was transported back to the 1970s.  I was in high school again – reliving when I first met Chuck at age 15. I don’t think I can remember what I had for lunch yesterday, but I could sing along with some of my favorite oldies almost word for word.

Could It Be I’m Falling in Love

I’ll Be Around


It’s a Shame

Rubberband Man

One of a Kind (Love Affair)

There is only one original Spinner still remaining. Henry Fambrough is 80 years old and moving much better than me I might add.  The Motown swag and style remains. The choreographed moves and the soulful harmonies brought me back to a time when life was uncomplicated.  When falling in love was simple and staying in love was expected.

For an hour and 15 minutes I tapped, and clapped, and sang along.  I almost completely forgot about my aches and pains. You see – inside this almost 60 year old body lives the heart and soul of a teenage girl.

  1. Isn’t it great to feel like a teenager again (but without the teen angst)?
    You reminisce and bring the reader along with you. Those of us “of a certain age” an relate to the aches and pains, the memory lapses, and the joy of remembering simpler times. I enjoyed reading your slice today.
