Today, I'm thinking of the song, I Don't Wanna Talk About It and the memories the tune and words bring back. First let me set the scene of what was happening around the world at the time.
· The Vietnam War ended,
· The British Conservative Party chooses its first woman leader, Margaret Thatcher,
· US Apollo and Soviet Soyuz 9 spacecraft link up in space and Russian cosmonauts and American astronauts shake hands,
· BIC launches first disposable razor.
Meanwhile, in 1975, Rod Steward released I Don't Wanna Talk About It. I hid my feelings too. My husband became increasingly obnoxious and I went into denial mode. I'd made a vow to him and wanted to honor my commitment. Yet, he made me desperately unhappy. Rod Steward's song spoke to my heart.
The world has changed drastically since then. Some of you weren't even around in that decade.
I'd love to hear if you ever lived a different way than you do now.
