David Bowie’s Tribute to John Lennon

Imagine if guns weren’t so accessible!

We’s still have John Lennon.

RIP David Bowie. The world misses you!

Lots of people I admire have passed away. It happens when you get to my age, unavoidable. Of course it saddens me and makes me realize my years are numbered too.

David Bowie’s death was the one that hit me the hardest. His songs got me through my teens. My heart missed a beat every I heard his music. Saw him back in the early seventies and it was the best concert I ever went to. Earls Court London! I don’t think a day goes by without me thinking about him. When he died, all my friends called me expressing their sympathy, they knew he was a big part of my life. Don’t get me wrong, this wasn’t a weird obsession, I just loved his music. I loved what he was and what he brought to the world. RIP David. I hope you’re smiling down on us!

Breakfast in America (without gluten)

“Can we have kippers for breakfast?”

I wish! I haven’t found kippers since I moved to the US. There again I live in Colorado, maybe I could get kippers on the East Coast. I used to love kippers. My breakfast’s are a little different these days. I smell the aroma of croissants warming in the oven and remember how they tasted. I crave their flakey, buttery deliciousness. Life is different when you’re gluten free. I enjoyed my sweet dark grapes, and cheese, washed down with a Cappuccino, but oh to just have a bite of a croissant!

Remember Super Tramp. I used to love this song. Its a classic. Enjoy!

 

 

Dallas – Love that Place

This is my fourth visit to Dallas and the more familiar with it I become, the more I love it. Two new discoveries this time, The Anvil Pub in Deep Ellum for Brunch and the Truck Yard for drinks and afternoon bands.

The breakfast drinks in The Anvil were definitely different and the Truck Yard made me feel like I’d travelled back in time to the sixties. More to love about Dallas!

Music and Memories

Sitting here on this sunny Colorado afternoon at 5:25 mountain time on Sunday August 11th 2013 – I look back at my life and smile. I am fifty six years old and I think I have plenty to smile about.  This afternoon I am remembering music, and what a huge part it played in my life.

What was the first record I ever bought?    Albatross by Fleetwood Mac. The year was 1969

What was the first open air concert I went to? Reading. Saw Rod Stewart, Curved Air and Hawkwind. FANTASTIC – crazy times.

Best Concerts I’ve ever been to were David Bowie at Earls Court in 1973 and Michael Jackson at Earls Court in 1989 and 1992.

Finally remembering with great fondness, the last Michael Jackson concert I went to with my husband and my eight year old daughter. It was amazing. I can’t believe he isn’t with us anymore. RIP Michael.

Colorado Countryside – My Home in Franktown

I woke up this morning and opened the blinds to let in the light. Once again was amazed by the beauty I encountered.

I have lived in this house for over fifteen years, the longest I have ever lived anywhere.

If you look at the view that greets me every morning, you will understand why. 

This view makes it impossible to be anything other than happy!

The Majesty of Fall in Franktown  Colorado

Pikes Peak with a light gown of snow

The front range, merging with the clouds 

The front range in its morning majesty.
