Elvis Sings On

Wasn't he something?

Elvis will always be my favorite entertainer. I'm amazed at how he continues to reach audiences 35 years later. My generation never got to experience his music live, but it still means so much to us.

I had the great opportunity to visit Graceland a few years back. It feels as if his spirit is still present there.

I made sure to join in on the tradition of leaving a note on his front wall.

Rest in peace, Elvis! Sing and don't be silent, 35 years later and beyond.

When I was young I couldn't get past the the fact that Elvis and my mother were the same age! But I remember the day he died like it was yesterday. A very thoughtful post. =D

He sure was, it must of been lovely to be able to visit Graceland. I love the idea of leaving a little note/message on the wall like that.
Thanks so much for your comments about little Poppy, I really appreciate them :)
