Music Monday with The Byrds and a Birthday Message

This will be my last Music Monday post as a forty-something woman. Yes, folks, tomorrow I cross over into another decade.

Holy crap! How old am I?

I’ve always loved this song written by Pete Seeger. With lyrics taken from the Book of Ecclesiastes, its message inspired my novella, A Season For Everything, considered one of my most moving stories about love and loss.

The song also hit the Top 100 Billboard charts in the year I was born. Don’t you just love serendipity?

“To everything – turn, turn, turn
There is a season – turn, turn, turn
And a time to every purpose under heaven

A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap
A time to kill, a time to heal
A time to laugh, a time to weep

To everything – turn, turn, turn
There is a season – turn, turn, turn
And a time to every purpose under heaven …”

Here’s to spending the next seasons of my life with you. Let’s hope they are warm ones.

Hugs and have a great week,

~ eden

  1. Happy Early Birthday Eden! I can tell you that the 50s are awesome. Enjoy every minute of them and then some! I hope you have a super wonderful birthday. Hugs, Ardee-ann


  2. You ruined my illusion. In all the years I’ve know you (what is it, like 3, 12?) I’ve never asked your age. You’re no fun. But you’re a swell pal and a great professional. So now that your life is half-over, is your glass half-full? Would you like me to top it off for you? Is that fifty in Canadian years or natural wonder years? I’ll explain the difference next time I’m in Toronto. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DOLL!! You’re Windsong stays on my…windsong stays on my…windsong stays on my mind


    • Oh my god, Joe. Illusion, my eye. You met me for god’s sake! Did I give off that “giggly twenty-something” aura. Wait … don’t answer that.
      And yes, I think it’s been at least 12 years. Time flies once you go over to the dark side. Glass always half full, no matter what age. I’ve cheated death once before so everything is a bonus or as you Americans say – gravy and biscuits, right? I’m slowly learning the nuances, see?
      Thank you so much for the birthday wish. And for the record, you should be committed, but then I’d miss your looniness.

  15. Hope you had a happy birthday. Only a couple years till I join you on the other side of 50, and if the 50s are as much better than the 40s as the 40s have been better than the 30s, we have a lot to look forward to!
