Today myself and Terry were doing some work in my parents house. To turn on the sprinklers we had to go down to the garage. It is a cave of wonder. Therein lies the essence of my youth, it contains the echoes of my parents as they were about the same life stage as I am now... facing a future full of promise and dreams. It is a treasure trove of nostalgia.
It is the graveyard of what was known as 'Starwood', the home in which I grew up. I'm both ecstatic and bereft.
I mined our old record collection and recovered the most precious of gems. Now, for the past 2 hours, I have been listening to audio gold.
Last Christmas, Terry bought me a turntable and tonight I'm having a vinyl orgy featuring Neil Young, Paul McCartney, Carly Simon, Carole King, James Taylor, Simon & Garfunkel, Jim Croce and Glen Campbell.
Today is Monday, but I have been transported to a place where that is not important.
I'm lost in timeless time... but time is only a measure of space and I feel so blessed to be occupying a space in which I'm afforded such magic.
I am soaked in vinyl, vodka and visceral wonder....
Always, Amanda xx
