Here I Come A-wassailing

By: Gabriela Yareliz Searching for Memories I can see myself holding the Christmas carol book, fast-forwarding the little white cassette in my purple boombox past that one song, “I Saw Three Ships Come Sailing In.” I found that song to be boring.

Monday Inspiration: November 16, 2015

(The hilarious Fran Fine). By: Gabriela Yareliz The 90s were good to us. For some reason, cassette tapes came to mind. I used to make a lot of tapes, with many songs recorded right off of the radio by boombox or walkman. It was a moment of excitement when your song would come on, andContinue reading “Monday Inspiration: November 16, 2015”
