I am somewhat embarrassed to admit that recently I’ve been listening to either the easy listening or 70’s stations in the car. Who knows why? I’ve been kinda depressed, stressed out…maybe the songs remind me of a better time? No, that’s not it…the sentiment in the songs reminds me of a theoretical different/better time…not one that I was lucky enough to have had. James Taylor’s “Carolina in My Mind” was playing as I got in the car, followed by John Denver’s “Country Roads, Take me Home.” As I’m wandering around TJMaxx my inevitable “Sweet Home Alabama” is playing. I stop at the Publix in Dania to buy a few groceries and my day of musical rapture? awakening? appreciation is complete as Hall & Oates sing “Sara Smile” to me.
