The Hills Were Alive

Min passed me her recently-bought copy of <a href="http://people.com" target="_blank">People Magazine</a>. The article she had wanted me to read brought back many memories. The article "Where Are They Now?" gave readers up-to-date news about the movie stars of yesteryear. It had special meaning for me because they caught up with Captain von Trapp, Maria, Liesl, Friedrich, Louisa, Kurt, Brigitta, Marta and Gretl. Looking at those pictures made it seem like yesterday, when in fact it has been a good 37 years ago.
Believe it or not, little Gretl is now 43 years old and the mother of a 10 year old boy. I'm sure all of us found one or more characters in the <a href="http://www.foxhome.com/soundofmusic/som.html" target="_blank">Sound of Music</a> (SoM) which we could relate to. For those of us who grew up with SoM, we slowly began to understand Kurt's desire to be a man, or feel the very same goosebumps Liesl had when she danced with Rolf. Some of us older ones have even quickened unto our own feelings much like Captain von Trapp upon falling in love with Maria.
Maybe I'll get the DVD when cash isn't so tight. It'd be great to have the hills come alive once more.
