WiFi for HiFi

Momma sang “Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket, never let it fade away…save it for a rainy day,” made popular by Perry Como way back when. I heard it on the radio, too, then later saw him performing it on TV. Timeless melody, timeless lyrics – markers of a classic composition.

Later I would hear that tune in Como’s melodious voice coming from our HiFi stereo. HiFi, short for ‘high fidelity’ and indicating the sounds had little distortion from the originals, faithful to the intentions of the creator. The term can describe images, too.

Does my Creator consider me HiFi? Like some of the vinyl records played on that stereo, time and life have scratched and warped me a bit, well, perhaps a lot. Not marred, though, is my desire to perform the song of life that is uniquely mine.

I have always had WiFi offering me the chance to stay connected to the Source directly, easily, quickly, any time and any place. It doesn’t mean I am insulated from hackers, fakes and cheap reproductions
or the temptation to be one of those. It does mean, however, that I have direct access to the infinitely patient Conductor of rehearsals as I practice for my finale. My song is not nearly ready yet, so pray I have a lot more time to perfect it, to be worthy of a classic label.

About Teresa Pearson Lee

Retired after 33 years of teaching English and French (one year in private school in Memphis, TN and the rest in public school in Doniphan, MO. Enjoying new adventures - all those things I put off for lack of time, energy, now I can try them! Pottery, writing, traveling, camping, kayaking, dancing, listening to some of the best live music ever, and making lively new friendships. All christened with an appreciation for great red wine! Created and operated KC's on the Current, then sold it and managed it for new owners. You might still find me at the reservation desk when spring rolls around. Born and raised in St. Louis, MO near The Hill. Though a transplant to Southeast Missouri, still a city gal at the core with a deep love of the natural resources in these Ozark foothills. Currently I am a content coordinator for Poplar Bluff Living Magazine and a columnist/stringer for the local weekly The Prospect News. My rescue Siamese helps with most of the proofreading; he has a great ear. I relish the solitude easily had in the Mark Twain Forest but thoroughly enjoy lively outings for music, wine, conversation close to home or in my beloved hometown. Technology is my greatest challenge but so worth the shared connections. There may be a need for solitude but there is little loneliness.
