This week, I have had the fun of spending time with two of the three local grandchildren. (Oldest was at volleyball camp). I took H. to yoga with me on Wednesday morning. He thought it awesome to go to yoga with his grandmother and thinks me cool because I wear lots of bracelets. A. and and I are working on a birthday project for their Mom’ upcoming special day.
We spent lots of time in the car and I found out pretty quickly that my propinquity for “talk radio” was vetoed! We listened to popular music instead. I had heard “See You Again” before but this time I really listened. It was written by Wiz Khalifa in response to the death of the star Paul Walker as a tribute to Walker in the new Furious 7 film. Charlie Puth was chosen to sing it because he had personal current loss over the death of a friend. The emotion and pain are very clear in his voice.
Loss is a theme that is a personal part of all our lives . . death of a family member or friend, loss of a child, a dream, youth, health and many more. Loss is a part of life for all people everywhere and this international , multicultural theme touches us all.
Thanks H. and A. for touching my heart in such a special way just being with you. Maybe I will listen to more music in the car. . . so much for that snooty thought that the only good music was from the 60s and 70s!
Until I See You Again !
