Summer Breeze


"Summer breeze, makes me feel fine,
Blowing through the jasmine in my mind."


I'm radio-headed again today. My favourite radio station seems to be playing a lot of seventies music these days, which I must say I love.

I sit here trying to work. With the radio off it feels too quiet and lonely. But with it on, sometimes great music takes me back to times and places in my past. (Don't get me started down memory lane - I'm not sure if I can make it back, as Leila reminds us Groucho was fond of saying.)

Those Iseley Brothers lyrics look pretty meaningless on their own. But add in the tune and that great guitar sound, and suddenly I am back in the Parks in Oxford, over by the river where you can lie like big cats in the tall grass and watch the punts pole by, carrying pretentious students who don't know you are there.

An hour earlier.....It is 1977, four thirty on a weekday afternoon. I am sitting at my desk (trying to work, lol ) when one of the scruffy fourteen year olds I am loosly keeping charge of shouts at me from the next room; "Oi Dreamer, your girlfriend's here!"

I go to the window, and see Lizzy looking up at me from the street below. She has walked by the House on her way home from school and she looks like love and sex in one gorgeous package. The fourteen year olds are so in love with her that they do whatever I ask them without complaint just to keep in my good books. She is wearing her tight fitting FU's jeans and a big white business shirt of her father's - her usual school uniform. Her hair is wavy strawberry blond and she looks a little bit like a young Lauren Bacall.

I run down the stone stairway and out of the big oak door and we amble arm in arm over the bridge and down the High Street before turning right into Longwall Street. The afternoon sun is still hot but her skin feels soft and cool under my hand and she makes me feel like I know everything there is to know about living and being in love.

We walk into the Parks and lie down in the long grass, and "summer breeze" always reminds me so strongly of those days; the smell of the earth and the glimpse of her breast between the buttons.

But literally as I am writing this now, Lou Reed's "Perfect Day" comes on the radio. (I know it's all about heroin, but I didn't know that at the time. ) It was one of my favourite songs then. I didn't understand the sadness in it, but I felt it had something to do with a perfect day that wouldn't last forever and would never come again. Maybe that's how we felt, lying there in the grass and watching people go by, kissing, knowing we would sneak back later when her parents had gone out and make love in her attic bedroom. School would be over in a month and then what? Would our lives change for ever? What would we both be doing when we were forty?

I am brought back to the present by the DJ who says,
"Maria Carey followed by the Police - that's not a news item, that's just the running order," and makes me laugh.

Back to work I guess, longing for those carefree summer days again.

You just reminded me of Nat King Cole's.... I love this tune!!

Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Dust off the sun and moon and sing a song of cheer
Just fill your basket full of sandwiches and weenies
Then lock the house up, now you're set
And on the beach you'll see the girls in their bikinis
As cute as ever but they never get 'em wet
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
You'll wish that summer could always be here
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Dust off the sun and moon and sing a song of cheer
Don't hafta tell a girl and fella about a drive-in
Or some romantic moon it seems
Right from the moment that those lovers start arrivin'
You'll see more kissin' in the cars than on the screen
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
You'll wish that summer could always be here
You'll wish that summer could always be here

In theory the trout season has started here, but today it was 8 degrees C with an east wind which felt like it was coming form Siberia. So not much hatching I wouldn't think!

The power that words put to a good tune can have in transporting one back to times & places, where even memories of smells & tastes are triggered, can be a lovely thing indeed.

Glad you enjoyed the journey, then & now.

Nice post Dreamy.

Thanks for coming by, nice to see a new face here. Well okay not exactly a face but you know what I mean.

Ah, Lizzy. Well first, you can read more about her if you would like to in my earlier posts, The River and Basement Benefits the second of which also tells how we drifted apart.

But I did google her a little while back and found that she has risen to spectacular success in her particular field. I don't know how she is in terms of life love and happiness, but I do know that she was very passionate about doing what she has obviously done very well indeed for a living, so I hope she is fulfilled.

I can't tell you how nice it was to come back here and re-discover this post. Not just because it was a wonderful memory, but because I see nice touches of writing in this post which I had forgotten; it is probably one of my own favourite posts, thank you for bringing me back. You made me want to get in touch with her and send her this, lol!
