Happy Birthday to Angela Wylie, Tinney Chapel's Talented Songleader

I believe it is fair, and relatively true, to say that most of us, whatever our ages, never quite give up, or even loosen, the golden thread that ties us to our childhoods.
For some, the tie is mom's apron strings. For some it's a strange feeling of "independence" associated with what's left of that least-independent time of our lives. For still others, it's just the golden memories of our childhoods.
And what is memory, but an ever-present, always open, ever brimful time capsule that continues to feed and nourish our psyches and souls all through this earthly life.
Cher said, and I agree, that life is not a dress rehearsal.
Jonathan Swift enjoins us to live all the days of our lives, and that is likely a unique thought for some, but yet profound advice for all.
Perhaps the most sage advice comes from the Sanskrit:
"Look to this day!
For it is life,
the very life of life...
for yesterday is already a dream,
and tomorrow is only a vision,
but today, well lived,
makes every yesterday
a dream of happiness, and every
tomorrow a vision of hope."
Again, Angela, songbird of Tinney Chapel: HAPPY BIRTHDAY.
