22-D by Beverly

This week at ABC Wednesday, D is the letter of focus.

D is for Dance.

Continuing with my “More” series, focusing on what I want to have more in my life, DANCE  is definitely something I want to do more of. In my twenties, my exercise of choice was dance – I would put on a tape I made and just dance, for 30 or 40 minutes each night. (It was certainly a great way to lose weight!)

There are so many great dance songs – many by lady Gaga and the BeeGees. How freeing it is to just feel the music and dance.

I had to give it up a few years ago when arthritis made it painful to dance. But I have decided I need to start again, with baby steps, to recapture the joy of dancing.

Here are the art cards I created to remind to just dance.

Hi Everybody

End Round 22 is on its way, this week we are at the third letter; the C.

Visiting some friends and whilst admiring their garden, I saw their pond.

For 22-C, I’ve found this one:

I saw this question on Quora recently: “Why are the Beatles so famous even though their songs sound boring?” Seriously.

I certainly can appreciate people having different tastes in music. So if someone thought the songs from a given early album was boring, one could say that, though I wouldn’t. But by the time they got to Rubber Soul and Revolver, I’m not hearing it.

Take the single Eleanor Rigby and Yellow Submarine from the Revolver album. One could barely tell the songs are from the same band.

More sharply, listen to I Want To Hold Your Hand, released on Boxing Day 1963 in the US – though the US doesn’t celebrate the holiday – which truly started Beatlemania in America. Compare it with the single culled from the Sgt. Pepper sessions, Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields Forever, released on February 17, 1967. What a stunning evolution in a little over three years.

On another note, congratulations to Sir Richard Starkey on being knighted.

 

22-A by Melody

Hi Everybody

2018 has started last week and this week we start round 22, isn’t that wonderful?

I sincerely hope and wish that you will not only share your thoughts with all of us in this 26-letterround again, or new if you first join, but also that you have lots of fun doing so and with what others give you when you visit them.

“Back to business”… Round 22… Letter A… my entry is…
At my take-over of this meme I’ve chosen to give myself an extra challenge by commiting myself to post entries in a certain theme. For Round 21 that was (predictable when one looks at my name) was music.
I’ve given it lots of thoughts the past weeks about if I would do this again in round 22 and if so what my theme would be….
In every day life we come across many things, we sometimes take notice of or not… as this is a photomeme, you all know the feeling about the way we look before taking a shot, what we want to capture and what not, having attention for composition for example. So I’ve decided to challenge myself extra by posting entries on wich the topic-letter is visible…

For 22-A I’ve found this one:

 

Have a splendid, ♥-warming ABC-day / – week!

21-Z by Melody

Hi Everybody!

If I haven’t done already then first of all my very best wishes for your Health, Luck, Love & Happiness and all of those you hold dear to your ♥ !

Today we start to close round 21. It has been a very great pleasure to uphold this meme and having been allowed to see all of the things you have shared in this round. It was extra exciting because with the start of this round many things changed, not only for you but for me also!

I want to say a very sincere and ♥-felt “Thank you!!” to all of you for participating in this meme and staying with it after ABC ‘moved house’. I also want to thank those participants who were part of the team, for keeping my back and helping me through this round!! I would not have been able to manage it all without them!!

On the threshold of round 22,  and very early in a brand new year 2018 also, I want to invite you all for the new round and I am very glad to introduce to you the new logo:

 
 

As I posted in every letter of this round something about music I ofcourse will do the same for the last letter.

For this I did not spent many time searching. I love beautiful voices, those voices who are able to touch my ♥ and if 2 of them come together, more so if it is an unlikely couple …. you’ve got me smile . Zuccero & Pavarotti in this specific case.
Hope you can appreciate my last choice for round 21 in music!

Hope to may welcome you again next week at the start of round 22!!

Have a splendid, ♥-warming ABC-day / – week!
