21-Day Family Connections Experiment, which is a family history project to explore the “benefits of daily connections with family past & present.”  Today’s topic from the Family Plan is what happened the year you were born.

The most popular song in 1960 was The Theme From “A Summer Place” by Percy Faith.  So, of course, I listened to the music.  Within seconds I was emotionally and mentally transported to a safe time and place with memories.  I could feel and smell the presence of my maternal grandmother’s home and having her near.  Ah, the music, memories and moods!

There’s a summer place
Where it may rain or storm
Yet I’m safe and warm

For within that summer place
Your arms reach out to me
And my heart is free from all care for it knows

There are no gloomy skies
When seen through the eyes
Of those who are blessed with love

And the sweet secret of
A summer place
Is that it’s anywhere

When two people share
All their hopes, all their dreams
All their love

There’s a summer place
Where it may rain or storm
Yet I’m safe and warm

In your arms, in your arms
In your arms, in your arms
In your arms, in your arms
