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.

Let's begin this day's postings with music since for sure music is in the air! Ever found yourself at the right place at the right time? This can be said of those visiting the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum around this time last year. Hard to believe Awakenings did not cross the path of this video until a year after its impromptu happenin'. However, as the ol' saying goes, never too late, so enjoy...

This is a terrific way to get into the mood of the holiday season for Christmas is filled with joy and merriment surrounded by music, music, music. Carolers, Christmas cantatas, radio, TV, video streams have already begun filling the airways with favorite melodies of the season. 

Sure makes you wonder where the impromptu visit will be...or perhaps has been...in 2015! Keep your eyes and ears open for it just may be YOU as witness to the impromptu!

Not everyone will be home during the holiday season. Places at the dinner table, seats in a favorite chair, wine or water glasses will remain empty, especially on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. Distance, obligation, estrangement, illness, money, various reasons will prevent family members from gathering together. Among those not home are our military men and women serving our country on foreign shores or a veteran without a home which should never be.
