#SOL18 Day 11
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
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.
