This popped up in my Timehop feed today, from 24th Feb 2016. It was originally written for the Senior Salon, which was started by Bernadette – you can find her blog Haddon Musings here. As you will know if you read my previous post, Bernadette has decided to bring the Senior Salon to a conclusion, and it somehow seemed fitting to round off my involvement with it by sharing this post again.
Regular readers will have noticed that I make a good deal of use of my ‘back catalogue’ – I’ve been doing this for more than five years now, and many won’t have seen these pieces before. This one is something of a first, though: here, I’m reblogging a post which itself contained a previous one, from 2013. If you haven’t seen either of them before the earlier one explains what music means to me, and how important it has always been, particularly when my depression was at its worst. So, this is a kind of ‘buy one, get two free’ deal – you can’t deny that I give you your money’s worth! Or maybe you can 😉
Since the lovely Bernadette, the author of Haddon Musings, started the weekly Senior Salon I’ve become rather more disciplined about writing something for my blog at least once a week, so that I have something new to share with the growing band who participate. There is much to be learned from sharing the experiences of others and I’m making some good new blogging friends. Do follow the link and you’ll see what I mean: after a day or two there are usually around 20-25 posts there. As well as posting something new to the Salon I’ve also got into the habit of looking through my previous posts and adding a link to one of my “golden oldies” each week. New followers won’t have seen these before and I like to think that they’ll enjoy them. I live in hope!
Having not been well for the past couple of days…
