The time: Spring, 1970
The place: Toronto suburbs, Canada
If you read the ‘N’ post, then you’ll know how much I love The Moody Blues. In April of 1970, their new single, ‘Question’, was getting extensive airplay. I was in love with Steve (from the ‘C’ post) and life was good.
Steve lived across town. Neither one of us had a driver’s licence, so our relationship involved a lot of walking. The warm, sunny weather gave us a serious case of spring fever. We spent many hours picnicking and making out down by the marina, where a large houseboat was moored. We fantasized about living on it and sailing away. This idyll was to end badly several months later (back to the ‘C’ post). Some of the lyrics from ‘Question’ seem prophetic, now:
When you do those things to me.
It’s more the way that you mean it
When you tell me what will be.
And when you stop and think about it
You won’t believe it’s true.
That all the love you’ve been giving
Has all been meant for you.
Have you ever had spring fever?
Looking forward to your comments!
