Begin Again

Today I will start anew.  

Full of love and hope for a better tomorrow.  

A day that will bring justice and equality for all.  

A new beginning for a future we can all believe in. 

There is a lovely poem that sums up my feelings beautifully.

The Beginning – 
As I begin this journey of mine,
I will loosen my laces and remove my boots,
to protect me from absolutely nothing.
Crossing over into a world of color.

An Elvis Girl

It was 43 years ago that Elvis Presley passed away.  I was 21 and remember exactly where I was that day.  It felt surreal to know that he was really gone.  

Throughout my entire life I was surrounded by his music and people who adored him.  

One of my fondest memories growing up was pretending I was one of the girls in his movies - Kid Galahad, Follow that Dream or Blue Hawaii. 

I loved all the music and dancing and still to this day, whenever I hear one of those songs it makes me smile and remember a wonderful time in my life.
