Attitude Adjustment

Why wait for Spring? After everyone had breakfast, I put Abbey Road on and danced around the living room with CG.

In case you were wondering, there's nothing specifically Spring-y about that album. (Yes. I'm 90 and use words like ALBUM.) It just brings back memories of the Spring Jete and I spent in our first apartment.

One gorgeous weekend, we decided to be really grown up and wash the windows (something I don't think I've done since). We lived on the top floor of a three family house. No one else was home, so we opened the windows and turned the music all the way up. Abbey Road was one of the CDs we played. I don't really remember any others. Every time I hear one of those songs, it's Spring again. Warm sunshine, crisp air, and the fragrance of new growth.

So this morning, I cleaned the cobwebs out of my head and made it Spring in my mind. For an hour, at least.

Good for you!
And Abbey Road has one of the all-time best songs for getting out from a funk, "Here Comes the Sun." Something about that song just makes me feel like things will all be ok.

Love that song. And the big merged multi-song span at the end.

I also love Maxwell's Hammer. What can I say? I'm a bit twisted. Heh.

At least it's not Octopus's Garden....dirty!
