It's appropriate that the first song
on the first day
of the third year
of my Birthday Month iPod Shuffle
was released on my birthday month 1976.
It's the first song I remember hearing on the radio.
Isn't that strange? I can remember the radio being on,
but this song...
this particular song captured my attention.
It was one of the first 45's I remember asking for.
I turned 9 years old that year.
I was going to be starting the 4th grade that fall.
It was 1976.
The olympics were that month;
Just the start of a young girls' inspirations and dreams
as I watched her flip her way into the history books.
It was a good summer to be young and
just starting to lay the foundation
for the rest of my life...
