Stumbling Your Way Finding FriendsBy
Twenty some years ago, I heard a song on the radio that I fell in love with, it reminded me so much of where I was at the time in my life and yes at that time, I listened to a lot of country music.
The opening lyrics
There’s a room in my father’s house
Full of old heirlooms
Grandma’s Bible, Grandpa’s trunk
To a total stranger no more than junk
The closest ties I ever knew
Until I met you
Finally one day the announcer said her name – Judy Rodman – quick to go to the store, and quickly disappointed, they didn’t have it. There were no Best Buys or Super Walmarts, that’s when you actually had record stores. Oh, how I miss Full Cyrkle Records!
I had to order it, and still have the cassette to this day.
Well, twenty some years later, stumbling my way through blogging and social networking, I started investigating my stumble friends & people who were subscribed. I found in there a woman with a name that sparked a memory of those years long past.
Judy Rodman – I investigated her blog and realized this has to be the same woman whose music danced into my heart all those years ago.
I sent her a note through stumble upon asking her, and telling her how that song danced into my life all those years back and to this day I still listen to it, yes it was one and the same.
She has been a wonderful stumble friend and her blog is full of information on music and her teachings, she a remarkable woman and musical talent. I am proud to know her.
We have such opportunity in front of us with social networking and it is amazing to me the people it has brought into my life. We all want stumbles and reviews, we all want our blog’s to get noticed, but taking the time to see who is noticing us and helping us out is how it pay’s forward.
This sketch is a complilation of Judy – she sent me a beautiful picture of her playing piano at Bluebird and the one that she uses on her stumble profile. I used these two along with some photoshop work on what her song brings to my mind.
Grandma’s bible and grandpa’s trunk – and the house in the backdrop is my family home where I grew up, one of which my dad built with blood, sweat and tears.
Go look and see who may be in your group of social friends..you may be surprised at what you find..
