Being a kid growing up in the 80’s was the coolest experience. It was right after flower power but right before the pop culture faze…
All the best kinds of teenie bopper movies were made…16 Candles and the Breakfast Club. Pretty woman and La Bamba. School daze and comedies like Harlem Nights.
I used to listen to Debbie Gibson and Wham..I loved the Bangles and EnVogue.
Life was simpler and learning about love and hope of a relationship were things I learned from movies and TV shows. A young midwestern girl before the streets grabbed a hold of her. The falseness of a happy ending is embedded in my brain. The simplicity that true love conquers all.
Some kind of wonderful gave me a vision where the girl wasn’t the typical beauty queen or the popular chic. The girl was a tomboy like me and a kindred soul like me and in love with a guy…like me…I revisited this movie and that feeling I had hoping for a love where friends became the happy ending. And love was the some kind of wonderful.
I still hope for this love…I didn’t pick the best relationships in the past but I believe it’s available in my future…
Love n light…til next time ✨
