Ever since the beginning of time something has caught the attention of many: that beautiful sound of music. Music is truly the language of the world, which brings us all together. Have you ever thought about the dreams of many? Well, I sure have. When someone asks me if I would like to travel back to the past or travel to the future. My answer to this question is quite surprising because it does not quite line up with the standard answer. I would much rather travel back to the past. When I was a young kid I figured out I was a vintage soul in a modern world. That at first seemed really random to me, but I soon got over that feeling. I love all things that came before my birth year.
Just recently -over Christmas- I was able to travel to Florida, which meant a trip to the good old Disney World. This trip reminded me about how much I love old things. Listening to vintage music takes me back to somewhere where I haven't been before. That vivid image in my mind almost seems as if I had been there at one time. "You're killin' me Smalls." is that quote from the film Sandlot that comes to my mind when I think of with this issue. Couldn't you imagine how blissful it would be to sit in a diner?
Opening the door allowed the smell of the classic all American beef hot dog escape into my nose. The sensory system in my nose was then hit with the aroma of hamburgers. People were sitting there, chatting about their days. Hmm, wonder how my friend is doing? My mind thought as I walked over to the line to place my order. Well, it is the all American classic 1962 diner. Ice cream was being served like hot dogs on the fourth of July. People gathered to watch the new baseball season kickoff, as they replayed memorable clips of the 'Great Bambino' himself: Babe Ruth. Every boy and girl in the nation looks up to these batters and pitchers.
Ordering has become easier than ever before in this land of the free, home of the brave. Sitting down was nice on my legs as it provided them rest. When the server brought me my food I immediately took a bite of my burger, which was absolutely tasty.
The 1950s and 1960s would be a dream to travel back to. This was the 'Golden Age' of America -at least that is what I call it. I guess any time between 1920 and 1970 really intrigues me because there was so much going on. I love learning via history books, but I actually prefer more of a hands on approach to learning. Time travel is not real and never will be, so it looks like I can just dream. I really see our progress here in America, however, I would love to travel back to ye olde America.
Science and history are probably my top two favorite school subjects. That may be surprising because I love to write so much. However, I have found true love within the connections all three of these subjects have in common. I just finished up my second semester of college classes in which I took an American History 1700 class at my University. After taking this class I have been able to reflect back on the old America. While we didn't discuss the classic American diners, I was able to learn about the history that lead America there.
So many movies bring back too many memories. I have come to comprehend the movies, songs, and quotes that just bring back that feeling. Babe Ruth was one of the most famous baseball players of all time, who has and continues to inspire many. Chuck Berry's good old vintage classics leaves the soul feeling nostalgic. The The movie 'Sandlot' captures things from the old America. Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald really added to the classic new music queue. Charles A. Lindbergh revolutionized aviation.

"Aviation is nothing short of a miracle. Since the beginning of time mankind has wanted to soar, but what are dreams? What are dreams you ask? Anything is possible, even that of going from the Wright Flyer to a Boeing B-747. Miracles do indeed happen and dreams do always come true."
Vintage aviation is the best aviation, and without a doubt those who pioneered aviation are some of the best individuals. Whenever I look up at the sky I cannot help but see and think about those pioneers who have come before me. These individuals have paved forth a new way for me to fly, and for you as well. Life is so important and it is so important to remember those small things that others have done for us. From the Wright Brothers, to Amelia Earhart, to Bessie Coleman, and even to Jessica Cox, aviation is really an amazing industry for all people. The belief in something and the effort put forth to achieve will almost always work. The progression of the aviation industry is no stranger to that saying, "aviation is nothing short of a miracle. Since the beginning of time mankind has wanted to soar, but what are dreams? What are dreams you ask? Anything is possible, even that of going from the Wright Flyer to a Boeing B-747. Miracles do indeed happen and dreams do always come true."
We now live in the new America, in which everything has changed. Nothing is really that much of the same. Now we can just take a dream back to the past. The times are changing, and so are we. Let's do anything and everything to remember the past.
