Musings From A Musical Mind

Waterwheel

Daydreaming

Daydreaming (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

It’s another blast from the past when you hear a song like the one I featured below.  I don’t know about you – but for me when I hear songs about childhood and things that children think about while playing and daydreaming, I can so easily go there.  Childhood should be at a wonderful time of simplicity and developing a great imagination.  I know this is not the case for many.  This is so sad.  I had a healthy home environment, we never had a lot of material things or money, but it was a great happy time.  I had a very keen imagination, including imaginary friends, playing outside under trees, (I played by myself a little too much) a few stuffed animals, dolls and even porcelain animals that each had a special name.   I was able to entertain myself for hours at a time.  This was a time before cell phones, emails and internet – nothing but a record player, a tape recorder, a few TV channels and radio stations.   I learned to develop a love for books and an active imagination.

Can you relate?  Then you must be from my era – growing up in the 60’s and 70’s.  Enjoy the song and see what memories stir when you hear these great vocals and lyrics.

God Bless

I hear you call me, waterwheel
Spin round, round in a circle
Gracing my child dreams on fantasy hill
Spin round, round in a circle
Flash! paddles sending a spray to the air
Lately, my thoughts are still-
With you there as you spin round,
Round in a boyhood daydream
Spin round My thoughts are drifting to a quieter time
(spin round, round in a circle)
Green covered slippery water-rocks I used to climb
(spin round, round in a circle)
Father and child walking down by the canyon
Lately, my thoughts are still-
With them there as they spin round,
Round in a boyhood daydream
