Etymology as Entertainment. The Letter “T”.

Holy Crappin’ Crap.  This week is whizzing by me.  Great launch of The Music Mamas (just search the Twitter hashtag #musicmamas to see the fun we had!), my Mother in Law is here for a week, Liam started swimming lessons…GAH!

So, I’m declaring this a “Way Back Wednesday” and digging up a random post from my old blog.  But, I’m adding a playlist, never fear!  I plan on staying up late, late tonight to get all my ducks in a row again…we’ll see how that goes.  <big eye roll>  In the meantime – here’s something to ponder…

Call it “Sesame Street” for ostensibly educated adults.

Here’s a list of words chosen merely because I like them. They’re fun.

And the letter of the day is………….

    my favorite of your words is Tincture, Ri

    for me it conjures old school apothecary medicine and current oovey groovy organic holistic healing…. All that’s old will be new again…

    and to add to your and Mari’s music with the letter “T”

    I give you Terrapin Station by The Grateful Dead and as per usual Robert Hunter adding lyrics… this song is beauty to my ears with great storytelling… and musically different from most grateful dead songs with added accompaniment and singers… very inspired imho… and Wiki agrees *squishyface*

    The song, “Lady with a Fan” was co-written by Robert Hunter and Jerry Garcia. Robert Hunter said of the song, “I wrote Terrapin, Part One, at a single sitting in an unfurnished house with a picture window overlooking San Francisco Bay during a flamboyant lightning storm. I typed the first thing that came into my mind at the top of the page, the title: Terrapin Station.”

    “On the same day, driving to the city, Garcia was struck by a singular inspiration. He turned his car around and hurried home to set down some music that popped into his head, demanding immediate attention.”

    “When we met the next day, I showed him the words and he said, “I’ve got the music.” They dovetailed perfectly and Terrapin edged into this dimension.”
