before music became
portable, it could tickle
the toes, pull on our
skirts, tease our rhythms,
and make small talk
with memories. it is
no small wonder then
that we pack the trains
every morning, side
by side, plugged in,
Very nice capture.
thank you, Rick!! glad to see you drop by again! hope you subscribe to daily doses!
This is a familiar feeling….i just really feel like i’ve been here. I feel so triumphant! It’s not just there; it’s everywhere.This kind of thing happens at flea markets in 2nd hand reality all over the world. I once found a worn copy of the MC5 high time sitting, waiting to revolve on a turntable in Texas… High Time.
I got the same vibe when we moved into a new house in Arkansas and discovered the stuff the previous owners left behind. One of those things was the J5 board game. It’s not just the jackson family though, or the five that is significant here. What it is, is that you were there, and that makes me glad.
wow, thank you for sharing your lovely experiences!! cheers, y (and high-five!)
Hmm.. I vaguely remember listening to old bengali records at my grandfather’s place. I don’t remember how big the machine was or if it was any different at all, but every time we would go there he would whip out some record to play for us. I was pretty young at the time.
i love the crackle on old classical music records.
I love this Yi-Ching!
