Helen was a firecracker.

I miss my grandmother. I wish she was here so that I can tell her "Grandma! you were right! there is NOTHING to like about that music, this really IS the good stuff!" Enjoy a cup of tea with her, while listening to Louis Armstrong as we sit in her little garden of flowers.

NPR played a song tonight on the "Swing Chronicles" that I distinctly remember coming on the radio while driving in her car. I was about thirteen, and making a whole lot of fun out of her music.

  1. ya know, that's the hardest part of losing those that we love. the pain comes at the oddest times and we can't rewind and go to them just to say, "yup, i can see why you liked that!" or "you were right all along i should have listened, i'm sorry". we have to trust that they can hear our hearts from where they are. love ya girl.
