I sometimes think that I was born in the wrong era. I am but 33 years old yet I enjoy things from the past. Led Zeppelin is one of those things from long ago that I adore so very much.
I have been rather busy the last few months – going out more and trying to get out of the house. I have reclusive tendencies that are kind of Hermit-like, so it is an accomplishment.
When I’m driving about town, I listen to the Classic Rock stations. I pulled into the parking lot one day and had Led Zeppelin blaring from my speakers. One of the teenagers that live in my apartment complex waved and looked at me curiously.
Of course, even if I am an introvert, I still said my hellos and asked them how they were. After they answered with a wave and a fine, they asked what that ‘noise’ was coming from my car.
The music was what they were talking about.
No, that isn’t noise. That is one of the greatest rock bands in existence.
I just kind of chuckled and it crosses my mind how over the years my tastes have been ‘out of date’. When I was younger and the other kids were watching Nickelodeon, I was watching old movies.
I am talking old.
Cary Grant. Douglas Fairbanks, JR. Frank Sinatra. Charlie Chaplin.
Am I blinded to the time I do live in? Is it some sort of desire to go back to a time that was simpler?
I can’t really say that those things are completely true. I do count my blessings and am so very happy to be alive at this time. So many technological advancements, it’s surreal really. And while there is a longing for times long since passed, I can’t wait for the future either.
I’d hate to think I’ve been blinded. I just like to enjoy as many things as possible as I tread across the blue-green marble we call home.
Until next time, let that ‘noise’ blare on this fine Saturday.
