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.

♫Totally Tubular♫

The sound of the 80s - totally tubular! The 80s' hits defined the MTV generation with pop classic songs that are still considered 'tubular' after over 30 years on the airways. If you don't recall the term 'tubular', it was used mostly in the 80's, or by people mocking the 80's, to describe something 'awesome' or 'excellent'.

Welcome into the Spotlight...
