I was killing time this morning, and decided to listen to some old Simon & Garfunkel. (Is there any ‘new’ Simon & Garfunkel? LOL) Anyway, I remembered that one of Mom’s all-time favorite songs was “The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin’ Groovy)”, and I began reflecting how that song really really did sum up her spirit and attitude when I was growing up, and it’s how I remember her: Feelin’ Groovy! No matter what difficulties she might have experienced, she always had such a beautiful outlook on life, and loved living.
The next song on my playlist was “Hazy Shade of Winter”, and I had to laugh, because that song really is more my outlook on life! Nowhere near as optimistic as my mother, but will a little hope still in there amidst the cynicism.
Since I’ve not posted in a while, I thought I’d just share the two videos, side-by-side, in case some random viewer would like to walk down memory lane with me. 🙂
