Dreaming of You
“Dreams can disappear - poof, just like that. Where do those
dreams go? Are they floating out there
with no place to land - songs not sung, dances not danced, all those dreams that will never come true?”
- Marjorie Klein, Test Pattern, 2000, p. 204
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Nothing like sad ol' love songs.....
BONUS - Dreaming of You - Selena, 1995
|"Dreaming of You" is the name of a
love song written by
Franne Golde and
Snow. It was Selena's biggest single, peaking at #21 on the
Billboard Hot 100. The song was released at the end of the first
quarter of 1995, after Selena's murder. It appeared on
the album of the same name, which was released posthumously.
Robert Johnson of Planet Music, a record chain in Houston, told New York Times that people in Houston were buying copies of the album Dreaming of You because of the single "Dreaming of You". 15 years after her death, Teresa Jusino of Popmatters wrote: "Even the most sheltered English-speaking music fan might not know Selena's name, but if you mention her hit singles, "Dreaming of You", or "I Could Fall in Love," they'll likely respond with 'I remember that song!', or 'I love that one!'."
Peter Watrous of The New York Times wrote: "It's not that she didn't sing well in English; she spoke English substantially better than she did Spanish. It's that the English song writers didn't step up to the bar with their best material. The music is faceless commerce. That she sings it so well on the album suggests that she had a good chance of success, working lush ballads in an anonymous pop style that Disney has mastered..."

From My #2 Son, Brent Harty ( Hillsboro HS, IL - Boy with Best Personality in the Class of 1990) of NC - 04/08/19, 6:47 PM - "Meanwhile, in Gettysburg...":
Our first tin type...
It was quite the honor to have it done at Gettysburg, behind the GEN Longstreet monument, on Confederate Avenue within a half a mile of where my 3rd Great-Grandfather, CPT William M. Tuck, 3rd Virginia INF Co K., Commander (16 Dec 1832 - 17 Oct 1899), stepped off for Pickett's Charge on the middle over 155 years ago!
WOWZERONI! Thank you, Brent! You two look fabulous! I'm so glad y'all were able to visit there!
Back in May of 1963, just a couple of months before the Centennial celebration, I was privileged to tour the battlefield with the great Typhoon Marching Band, and all these years later I can still recall the spiritual connection I felt to that hallowed ground!
|Thanks again, Joyce! This is one of my all-time faves!|

Amy Gunderson's Dreaming of Spring Hat - "Here at Universal Yarn, the plants are getting mixed signals. Is it time to bloom? We as crafters are getting mixed signals too – shall we turn to warm weather fibers, or bundle up just a little while longer? We thought we’d split the difference – a warm hat, but a quick project, so we can enjoy it and then be done when more moderate weather rolls in. And because, like the flowers, we are ready to see the sun, we’re calling this one Dreaming of Spring."
