Welcome to the Tuesday Chatter Cafe, where there’s nothing better than a thought-provoking chat over a great cuppa coffee. Let’s talk about this and that and figure out where it’s at or do we really want to know? Undoubtedly, certainty is doubtful.
Tidbits from the year 1979
ESPN debuts, a dedicated network to sports fans (Entertainment and Sports Programming Network), The Soviet Union and the United States sign the Salt II Treaty, Margaret Thatcher was elected as the Prime Minister of the UK, the Sahara desert experiences snow for 30 minutes, International Year of the Child begins
I was still loving disco in 1979. Disco was both partnered and solo dancing. We practiced for hours to perfect our steps and moves. We wanted to be seen swinging, twirling and in sync with the music with the greatest of ease. There were disco floors that radiated positive energy and glittering lights. And of course, there was the disco ball above our heads adding more to the aura of the glamor and glitz. We dressed to the nines to go discoing. This was a happy time in life for me.
Let’s see – a few steps to the right, left, back and forward to beat, which the basic steps are simple but then there were several disco step patterns-Latin Hustle, American Hustle, Street Hustle, Continental Hustle, New York Hustle, Disco Swing, and more. And don’t forget to count your beats.
The birth of the Year of the Child
This is a given to make one smile
You know music does a lot
There’s no end, there’s no plot
We got the Village People and the YMCA
Their #1 hit sold oodles each day
The Y filed a libel cos it wasn’t okay
Pink Floyd’s in-person marvels at The Wall
They didn’t waste time shopping at a mall
What they yakked about at dinner
Tuned them in as a winner
You know it takes more than one hand to clap
But only one thumb and a finger to snap
Paper dolls of the world decomposing in brawls
They didn’t get the memo about awes and flaws
Our perception of deception seems too lame
As we ponder the resolve with no one to blame
A blurry lens and murkiness one in the same
Hollow souls lost in quicksand appear tattered
The end of the rainbow is all that mattered
Nineteen seventy-nine a measureless year in time
But all in all just “Another Brick in the Wall”
“Long you live and high you’ll fly, and smiles you’ll give, tears you’ll cry and all you touch and all you see is all your life will ever be”
― Pink Floyd
“Breathe, breathe in the air,
Don’t be afraid to care…”
― Pink Floyd
Let’s Meet & Greet one another at the Tuesday Chatter Cafe
