I visited far more blogs than last year and was all at once inspired and humbled by the creativity. I panicked a little bit each time I followed someone new because I was worried that I would be overwhelmed by my blogger reading list the next day. I admit that there were some folks whose blog addresses I jotted down to check out at a later date. I lost track of all of the movies, books, and television shows that I felt compelled to check out after seeing people write with such passion about them. I have not lost track of the blog address for the person who did a different cookie every day...no, no, no I have that written down somewhere safe.
I was driving around yesterday, a time when I typically do some of my finest thinking, but instead just felt sort of defeated. Out of nowhere a song came to me that I have not thought of, let alone heard, in years. Have you ever had ...
Something at the edge of your mind
You don't know what it is
Something you were hoping to find
You're not sure what it is
Then you hear the music
And it all comes crystal clear
The music does the talking
Says the things you want to hear
Or maybe, like me, you were...
Thinking it over
But you just can't sort it out
Do you want someone to tell you
What they think it's all about
Thank you for indulging me as I share another eighties classic, to celebrate my "Triumph" in completing the challenge, and to ease the angst.
Magic Power...Triumph, 1981.

This was one of my favorite series! Brought back so many memories, good and bad, but a trip down memory lane is what I was doing too...ReplyDelete
You were an awesome minion, and I know you visited more blogs than the average participant - good grief you guys were amazing!

I enjoyed your series, even though I wasn't there when most of the songs came out. ;-)ReplyDelete
I kinda had the same thought about my theme. Who really cares about the horror movies I like. But I did it for me, and it was still fun.ReplyDelete
I think being a part of A to Z, helps you develop your blogging abilities. You see things that work and don't work. Of course what works for me, may not for someone else. But I've got my list of bookmarked blogs I'll have to go through. Some I'll add to my blogs list, others I won't. But it's been fun to find all sorts of new people.
And just to let you know, you have inspired me. I have my A to Z theme for next year. Not angsty songs, but just songs in general that mean something to me. I'm really kicking myself though, because for the next 11 months anytime I hear a good song on the radio that could be in my A to Z, I'm gonna have to write it down. Oh well. :)
Congratulations on finishing. It really is quite a triumph.ReplyDelete
It was a brilliant idea. I enjoyed visiting and your visits!ReplyDelete
Gosh I loved the 80's music. I was too young to be angsty through most of it, so I could just enjoy it and love it to my heart's content. What a great idea for an A-Z theme! :)ReplyDelete
I had so much fun popping in here, it brought me straight back to high school.ReplyDelete
