Thanks Donna Summer...for making the disco era so bearable.
This past weekend I happened to be at a relative's wedding, and happened to catch a shot of a chandelier--I love shiny things. When I heard of Donna's passing, I was looking at my shots and immediately connected the two in a very powerful flash of a retro moment. During the 70's the only way to get me onto a disco floor was to get me drunk first--and only then would I get up the courage to dance. (I can't tell you how many people I karate-chopped with my wicked leg action) Donna Summer's music was so much more than just disco, it was what kept me dancing, even when the alcohol wore off. I almost never admitted to my rocker friends that I listened to any disco, but I did when it came to her's. It's because of her that disco will never die.

    We all have our disco era stories. I was 31 and in love with the glitz and glam of discothèques, so much so that I mailed away for the 'Learn How To' which included a cardboard runner of disco steps. My kids still laugh about that. Once Tom and I got that down, we headed off to Nimbus... the be-all to end-all Chicago discothèque. To enter the club, you had to walk through an arched walkway filled with mirrors and neon. It simply never felt SO good to be alive as you have so eloqently stated. Your image brings those memories that wash over me like wave of complete joy. Fabulous is the only word that comes to mind.
