A full stop is placed to begin anew. To start from the top, to resume, but not necessarily moving the story forward.
One can also restart by retracing a few steps. Resetting, zeroing out, erasing, rectifying the good we failed to do — or that which was not good.
So, let’s do it! Let’s bring the generations together to discern if this life is the one we had chosen for ourselves. I envy my adolescence to a certain extent — envy who I was in the Eighties! The years of trust, of well-being, of positivity. The first music videos, Swatch watches, New Wave, the Commodore 64, the Berlin Wall, network television, the career woman, the payphone, Reagan and Gorbachev. I yearn for an extraordinary show, a celebration, a reason to reunite and laugh at what we once were, and at what we’ve become.
It will be a splendid journey, an intertwining of words, of images, and of music. I can’t wait to embrace you all, can't wait to throw my arms around your necks…. Dim the lights and let the celebration commence!
