Blogging From A to Z

Yesterday, while I was mulling over some ideas for today’s Y post, I was trying to think of what I might want to use for my last A to Z post. Tomorrow’s Z post is just as good as written because it’s a logical full circle connection to my A post which started the whole Adventure. So that just leaves the Y post. I scratched my head as I looked over the past month’s posts. What topic had I not touched upon? What had I missed? As I scrolled through blog posts, I asked Alexa to play some music for me and I went on browsing this blog for ideas.

Yesterday. As the lyrics played, I didn’t even have to think about them. They just came automatically, like a piece of me that I know so well. “Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away…”.

Yesterday my life was filled with rock ‘n roll, jazz, pop, Latin rock. It was filled with The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys, Simon and Garfunkel, Sonny and Cher, Carly Simon, Carol King, James Taylor, Santana. And there was Freddy Fender, Malo, Tower of Power, Chicago, Rod Stewart, Kenny Rogers, The First Edition, and so many more.

Yesterday was filled with Eleanor Rigby, Hey Jude, Let It Be, Paper Back Writer, Twist n Shout, and Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da. It couldn’t go on without California Dreaming, Ventura Highway, or A Horse With No Name. Yesterday I went to the dance looking for romance and came across Peggy Sue, Oh Donna, and Barbara Ann.

Yesterday. So many memories; so much richness. Yesterday’s music will live on and today’s will become someone else’s “yesterday music”. Music will always be with us; a part of us; inside of us; from us. At least that’s the way it is with me
