45s. I remember my first record player I got for Christmas and I got 45s of Donna Summer's "Dim All the Lights" and " Pop Muzik" a 1979 hit song by M, a project by Robin Scott. I played them over and over.
Memory Lane. Now a Christmas classic for children and adults, "Frosty" was written and recorded in 1950 (the year before my birth) by Gene Autry & The Cass County Boys. I don't think I ever heard this group sing it but I remember the Burl Ives rendition.
"...if a Bad Thing happens part of you is seared into place, and trapped for ever at that time. The rest of you moves onward, dealing with all the todays and tomorrows, but something, some part of you, is left behind. That part blocks the light, colours the rest of your life, but worse than that, it's alive. Trapped for ever at that moment, and alone in the dark, that part of you is still alive.” ~ Michael Marshall Smith
Tree trunks become angels lifting their hands, spreading their fingers, reaching out, creating a cathedral ...a sanctuary for us to worship in!
