But then, The Chordettes sing through the sound system like a magical trance and I discover I always had that springy swing in my step. I just wasn't allowing it to surface--until now.

I will never forget how the "Lollipop" song sang to me and forced me to let go and find my swing.


  1. I love your title...I had no idea what you would be writing about...but you connected it so well. Thanks for adding the music as I am swinging with it now as I type this...thus many typos that I have had to correct. This can sure bring up someone's mood. thanks!

  3. So happy you got the swing in your swing. How did the test go? Love the song as well.
