Dear Mary Tyler Moore, we loved you. Thank you, dear lady. Strong women, take note. She was working at it way back, so, yes, in a way, this is a #TBT.

Witty, graceful, resourceful, wise, exuberant, melancholy, loving; a working, single woman from the early days, Mary Tyler Moore.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: NOSTALGIA

Columnist and editor Doug Larson said nostalgia is a file that removes the rough edges from the good old days. For me, it’s all about the music.

 

Music evokes so many feelings in us, memories, nostalgia, things that are connected to our past.

When I listen to the hits of the early Sixties, I get happy. Thank you, Pandora and Spotify, for the eternal soundtrack of my life.

I read that our brains bind us to the music we hear as teenagers more firmly than anything we ever hear as adults.  And it’s a connection that doesn’t weaken as we age.

Psychologists and neuroscientists confirm that nostalgia isn’t just a cultural phenomenon. It’s a neuronic command.

OK, so maybe in retrospect, those high school dances weren’t roaringly impressive. The memory of them may fade but the sentimental blush of the music? Never.

DID SOMEONE SAY #TBT?
