Well. Here we are again at that time of year. Time to remember. Time to celebrate Elvis' Life and what he meant to us. Hope you all have a wonderful Elvis Week. Will be thinking of you as you travel safely I hope to Memphis. Wish I could join you, but will be thinking of you.
For me....this is a bit different this year. I feel sadder than last...I think because so many of our group of friends/family really...are gone. It just is painful emotionally for me this year for some reason. Hopefully by next week I'll be able to listen to Elvis Radio or my CDs or??? Past few days it's just been hard. So! I'm spending my days feeling what I need to feel by listening to music that expresses that melancholy feeling precisely...Fado, of course.
My friend in Portugal just informed me that a word--" SAUDADES-- in fado songs I've been trying to figure out the meaning of (I could have looked it up, but just "had" to try to figure it out myself...to no avail). Celia told me it means "longing", Missing, Aching for someone or some thing. Well...that is exactly how I feel this year. So I close with, Sinto Saudades de Elvis and all my friends who were family then. And to you all.
