Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

When Awakenings was first conceived, the word 'blog' seemed like a word from a foreign language since I had no clue of its meaning. Thus, it began with an incorrect description. Check out my first post HERE... you will get the gist of the confusion. The blog is the stage, the blogger is the person behind the scenes.

Then, came celebration when the site hit 10,000+ visitors!


A few days over one year later the count had risen to ...

 Adrenaline was pumping in anticipation of reaching 100,000 by the end of the year. Then, the day came when it happened...Bye Bye 2013, Welcome 2014!


Today, yet another milestone has been reached! To all followers and friends of Awakenings from around the world...Thank you for your support of Awakenings!

Music Memories

Life without music is life without a soul. Songs are epitomized in the first yawn of the morning to the last kiss goodnight, from the bewitching midnight hour to the breaking light of dawn. Identify with your own special kind of music as you visit music through the centuries.

Each entry ends with the link to the next.

And the music goes on beating to the rhythm of the changing times...

Because of you I continue to write...
