The Birthday by Marc Chagall, 1915
My older brother, Nate sent me this little gem of a song this morning, along with a little note.
Happiest of Birthdays, Amelie. The two most important days of your life are the day you were born and the day you figure out why. Cheers to your why! (A quote by Mark Twain that I only just found out!)
We we were partners in crime in the 80’s, meaning he took me to some wild places, and we did some very wild things, corrupting his little sister. His nickname for me then, was Molly Ringworm (I’m not sure why, but I am glad it was short lived.) Molly Ringwald and I actually kind of looked alike for a spell. I believe this song is from 16 Candles. Isn’t Clare Grogan a sweetheart?
Music from the 80’s makes me feel very happy. So, I will share another that still gives me tingles.
And, one more for good measure.
