The Moody Blues

Posted by
Mooie (Vancouver, Canada) on 2 November 2012 in Miscellaneous.

A cheesy little ditty to mark a memory of a sweet boy from my youth... why now in this stormy moment in time, I dont' know... but there I am in rush hour traffic thinking back to drinking beers around a pool table at an RSL club in Batlow NSW..... and sitting down beside a charming grey-eyed boy from across the Atlantic

"I wonder if you care
I wonder if you still remember
Once upon a time
In your wildest dreams

When the music plays
When the words are touched with sorrow
Once upon a time...." :-)

~ The Moody Blues

I am not sure how or when, but posting on this blog has become my most accurate platform for creative expression. It's so inspiring to browse through other blogs and every comment is very appreciated!

@Devi: Thanks! Actually... I'd have to admit that if I scratch the surface of my today.... I'd discover the memory of this underneath it.
