Forever Young

~   ~   ~

In the late 1950’s my Mum was an 18-19 year old, a young carefree woman living in London.  And because today’s short story was to some extent inspired by the memory of my Mum, I thought this would be the perfect light hearted video to share with it!

    1. Thank you Scott! Yes, if only we could! I get a real thrill out of watching that old lady magically turn back into a beautiful dancing woman – makes me cry every time! 😀

      1. I, too, thought this was touching. Kind of a fascinating thought. I wonder, do you think that this is what many women want as they grow older? Perhaps only for a time to relive the pleasures of youth.
        This reminded you of your mother? I wonder how so?

        1. I would imagine a lot older women would not really wish to be a young woman again, any more than I would wish to be 21 again. It is more to do with specific memories – the whole experience of being young again, might actually be really overwhelming!

          It reminded me of my Mother, mainly because it’s about the 50’s, and I have many pictures of her young days, lovely dresses, one in particular had the polka-dot design on it – very 50’s! But she wasn’t much of a dancer, was a bit shy when it came to dancing I think. It’s no surprise she met my Dad at work and not at a dance hall! 😀

        1. I don’t remember this song from the 80’s at all! Interesting – and definitely from when I was young!! I should have got up and done a dance – thank you for that! 😀

    1. In the mind yes! I remember my Mum telling me she felt 25, and never stopped feeling 25. Now that I’m in my 40’s, I know exactly what she meant! 😀

  1. Thanks for letting me camp out in your blog for a little while today. I had a great time and tried to leave my campsite as good as when I arrived. I’ll be back in a couple of weeks!
