One of those fantastic days for me that started off with a healthy breakfast of cereal, v-8 juice and mandarin oranges. I added a cup of fresh brewed coffee and read the newspaper. Waited for my keyboard teacher but she was a no-show and so I left to visit my Sophia at the Middle School.
I was impressed with her report card that showed all A’s and B’s and just one C in Social Studies that she plans to work harder to bring it up to a B and perhaps an A by next report period. Sophia’s attitude is wonderful and to hear her plans and her innocence, is a glance backwards to my teen-age years. Although at 13 I remember checking out the males and my Dad telling I was boy crazy, but it was all part of being a teenager and to just enjoy it, but my school work was a priority. Our plan for next week is to work on some lessons together that will help us find out her likes and dislikes and what gets us motivated. It is helping us build not only a relationship, but an endearing friendship. With that in mind, I drove to the Richey Suncoast theater for the Frank Parsons’ Big Band concert.
This months theme was music and lyrics of Cole Porter and Frank Parsons started off with an introduction of Cole Porters life history. I learned that he lived an extraordinary rich life style and that his music goes back over 75 years and amazingly it is still wonderful to listen to. It sure is proof to me that good music and lyrics live on and are wonderful to dance cheek to cheek. The rhythms are catching as I found myself once again dancing in my seat. For Ms Millie it was a most enjoyable and satisfying day and I hope you had a good one, too.
