I'm An Old Soul

  What is an Old Soul? An Old Soul is a young person who not necessarily acts like an old person, but they love music that people in the previous or older generation would love.
 I am an old soul.  As I write this blog, I am listening to some Patti LaBelle, old and new stuff, I have also listened to the late Sylvester James, The Weather Girls, Black Box, Motown, and some Rev. Thomas A. Dorsey, The Caravans, The Davis Sisters, and many other "old school" artists.
  I always had a more mature stance when it came to certain things such as television music, my personality, and how I carry myself. Although I am a gorgeous 26, I still have sort of an old spirit.  It shows in my wisdom and the things that I do and refuse to do.  I'm not ashamed to be an old soul.
  During the weekend, I was at my mom's house singing some early Phyllis Hyman and Angela Bofill, and my mom looked at me and asked "Boy, where did you hear that song? That's older than you." I just simply smiled. My mom knew I had access to music.  I blame her and my aunts for how I am.  When I was little kid, they would play Aretha Franklin, The Four Tops, The O-Jays, The Emotions, Earth, Wind, and Fire, as well as Teena Marie, and not to mention Whitney Houston.
  When I was about 6 or 7 I told my mom that I would marry Whitney Houston (My my my how things have changed).  I also told her that I wanted to sing like Luther Vandross or Teddy Pendergrass.
  Not to mention I loved watching "H R Puff N Stuff" on TV Land as well as "The Munsters." It was something I loved about those Classic shows.  I also lived for "Gone With the Wind," "Breakfast at Tiffany's," as well as "Unconquered." My mom and grandmother started me on those movies as well as westerns such as "Raw Hide," "Gun Smoke," and my favorite "Bonanza."  Those shows give me my life.

As I finish this blog, I'm about to listen to the "H R Puff N Stuff" theme song. See ya later,
