A Blissful Trip Down Memory Lane

Shower the people you love with love
Show them the way that you feel
Things are gonna be just fine if you only will
Shower the people you love with love
Show them the way that you feel
Things are gonna be much better if you only will. ~  from “Shower the People” sung by James Taylor

Dr Bill Wooton provided the words and music to the whole song on his blog today, but I thought I would share the words I found most important – words which if taken to heart are really what life is all about. And these words are a gentle way of going into the weekend.

I am an unabashed fan of James Taylor—which I guess in some circles is not considered cool (not the circles that I travel in), but I do not care. I think people of my generation, the young Boomers, find his voice and words take us back to a time when we were young, but also speaks to us today.

Thanks Dr. Bill for the trip down memory lane. It was blissful.

What makes your trip down memory lane blissful?

A Blogcation

James Taylor at Christmas


Just a little heads up:

I am taking a week off from blogging to concentrate on a number of things that need my attention–so while I will be responding to commenters today–I will not be seen or heard from much until December 1st. Enjoy this last week of November and see you back here next Saturday.

Note: Make a note in your calendar to come to my virtual Christmas Party on Saturday, December 15th.

Here is my Formal Invitation:

Virtual Christmas Party

Date: December 15th

Where: Virtually Here

Why: It Is Christmas!

Theme: Come as your favourite author or character in a book.

Co-host: Robin Coyle (she does not know this yet)

Bring: Your favourite appetizer from the 1970’s

Music Provided by: James Taylor and Rodents & Rebels

Special Entertainment: Margaret Atwood. She promises to be festive.

Requirement: Description of your author or character’s outfit, appetizer, and favourite song request from either James or R & R.

I will provide an update closer to the 15th. Idea stolen from Robin Coyle who threw a virtual Cocktail Party that was a raving success. You can wear your shoes in the house if they are clean. Reindeer socks will be provided at the door for those who need them.

See you in a little less than a week!
