Way Back Wednesday #2

Several years ago, whilst writing to a fellow blogger, the idea to share little memory snippets was born. The name “Tidbit Tuesday” was coined. I know that it is easier to connect to someone’s writing if you know a bit about their background, so in addition to my poetry and reflective posts, I have decided to share some favourite songs with you. Some of them may surprise you – I like a wide range of music, from Classical to Pop, Soul, Film Themes, and Country, just to name a few types.

Without further ado, let me go “Way-back-when” and introduce three more of my favourite songs…

  1. Blue Skies (Eva Cassidy) – While my first inclination is to mention “Fields of Gold” when I think of Eva Cassidy’s songs, I can’t go past the very first song I learnt of hers. Such a cool, snappy little song, it reminds me a little of that Disney song , Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah” for its energy and ability to make me think of a cloudless Summer’s day.
  2. Forrest Gump Feather Theme – What a story this piece tells. Even if I didn’t watch the movie, Forrest Gump, I’m sure it would have still tugged at my heart strings. I told my hubby that I would like it played at my memorial one day- it seems to capture the ups, the downs and inbetweens so beautifully, starting out so delicate and childlike, going through trials of great magnitude, reflective and solemn then, as I want my life to conclude with, a big finale followed by a quiet exit! To understand me more on this one, I will post my biographical poem with poetic licence, “The Strong Stand Firm”.
  3. Stuck on You (Eddie Lovette) – I grew up with a lot of easy listening tunes played in the car and at home. This one was so likeable, I never grew tired of it. I feel relaxed when I hear it (I would tend to have to look for a song like this now, rather than stumble across it on the radio!). I love the longevity of the relationship spoken of in the song. That undying kind of a love that comes back for more, no matter what has happened.

Well that’s it from me for now – a very quiet few weeks on the blog where I just needed to look after myself, followed by an urge to write again. It’s just gone “Pumpkin Hour” (midnight) so I really shouldn’t be staring at a computer screen. Hope to see you again for another “Way Back Wednesday”. Should you like to join me, you could have a regular post by the same name on your blog – it would be fun to share music!

I am a wife and a mother of two beautiful and spirited young children, living in Australia. Unashamedly, I am a follower of Christ; He is my daily hope and inspiration. I enjoy dabbling in a range of hobbies ! These include (but aren't limited to) gardening, cooking, making cards, playing piano, singing, writing letters, journalling and walking in nature/ identifying animal species. I find it hard to make time for myself but I'm learning that life is too short and sometimes things must be scheduled in or the days slip away without much change. Family and friends are very important to me and I am happiest when I live my life in community.
