Meditations of a christizen (christian-citizen)upon today's topics.
I belong to a local offline writing group. We met and shared our creative outputs in a real-world setting before the pandemic era. Now, when we meet it’s virtual. We still share our individual works but now we’re dispersed physically even as yet connected by technology.
The local writers often include a theme based assignment. A recent virtual get together spawned a ‘10 things people don’t know about me’ subject for that evening's gathering. I included my Hollywood breakout performance as number 5 on my list of 10. (okay it wasn’t Hollywood but close to it)
I wrote the following:
“I performed at Disneyland. Yes, I along with the rest of my high school marching band. I played a special part. The band played “Love Will Keep Us Together “, the 1975 smash hit by The Captain and Tennille. The introduction was played by the sousaphone (tuba) players comprised of myself and the other guy.”
The year was 1978. I would visit the Los Angeles area again some three years later but wouldn’t step foot in L.A. for a third time until 2014. I haven’t been back to Disneyland since my memorable moment in the magic kingdom sun. Oh, but I still recall it.
