    ""Can you fix this ?""
    I ask the man from the audio store

    "'than you might as well buy another one ""

    "'But i want this one..."" i said..

    "'he is old but he still working good...""

    ""So why do you bring him here if he is still working good "" he said..



    (silent)


    "'its a nice one you got there "' he said..

    "'yeah i like AKAI ""

    "'AKAI and me are AIGHT "'

    ""they dont make those anymore ""he said

    "'right with their own hands "'?

    ""nope things are not the way they used to be "' he said

    "'well i,m going to fight for this one... there must be someone out there that can fix this one... and he or she will get paid worthy ""

    "'mmm maybe i got a adress for ya...'''he said ..

    "" realy ?"'



    I was laoding in my second box...
    yeah i,m making progress thank God
    I bumped into a old stereo and an old sony record player..
    Tried to make the the stereo work..
    Sat there on the ground fighting with some cables try to figure it out..
    plug some old stuf into the new....
    but this one lost it..
    well the stereo did..
    I took a break between the fixing and thought back about what my father told me ,how i used to crawl as a baby over the ground and played with his records ...
    not put them on but trying to eat them or put them on my head..
    and how i could sit there for ours watching and stroking the cover of Stevie wonders ""Songs in the key of life"'...


    what was it about """those days""
    is it because it is "'in tha Past""
    that makes it now "'the good Old "'

    or is it that we have to get "'passed by the near""
    ...........that is ......""not good"'

    I finaly continued with selecting me things that i have to send..
    and i bumped into some little aquipment ,
    i found this little fm audio scan that i bought last year..
    a radio that is so little that you can put it in an Orange.....
    Put the power on to see if it worked..


    ... it did..

    I heard the last minuts of the news of what was going on in the world..
    Than after "'marvin song comes on"' ....(mercy mercy me)
    and i thought lord have mercy ...
    brr scary ..
    looking out of the window ..
    as the song ended..
    ""yes i hear you "'
    "'Yes i feel you"'
    So i made a deal with myself..

    ""i meet you half way FUTURE "'
    that means the old stereo goes..
    but my sony record comes with me..
    it aint ova..
    till its ova ..
    i have to keep some roots..
    even if i have to fix them with my own hands..
    me saying to my man AKAI...
    it aint ova untill its ova..



    jee....


    what packing can do....

    Going through old things can bring back the fondest of memories. I have an old stereo also. The radio still works, nothing else does. But it's a nice piece of furniture and I just can't part with it. Reminds me of when my parents used to play records on it, so I get what you mean here.

    For LibertyLady's eyes only

    LibertyLady, the past is the past and thats a fact
    but there are things of the past, that to some attract
    Every thing you see stimulates memories, good or bad
    I opine you did well meeting in the middle, new things come you can add


    LibertyLady, Seize the day
    great poem you have made
