Here is a lullaby which I sang and taught to my children, their children and now to my great-grandchildren. It is “Chi-Baba, Chi-Baba, (My Bambino Go to Sleep)”, published in 1947 and made popular by Perry Como that same year.
Have a little listen and see if the seniors among you won’t have a tiny touch of nostalgia.
It is said we should not live in the past, but I spent a few hours last night doing just that.
I tuned into a TV program, Jukebox Oldies, and was swept away into so many parts of my past, it was incredible.
Each song had its own place in my heart and life. Each emotion was as real in this time as it was in the years of my youth and young adulthood.
Paul Anka, Patti Page, Pat Boone and a host of other popular artists from the past put the finishing touches on an already perfect day…my 78th birthday. (There you go, Christine!)
Did I have a happy birthday? Indeed I did, and that bout of nostalgia was a welcome end to the day.
