There’s nothing quite as cheerful as the opening theme to The Mary Tyler Moore Show:
Watching this and listening to the music makes me so nostalgic for a time when we were more innocent. However that refrain, “you’re gonna make it after all,” reassures us, after all these years, that there are still brighter days ahead.
Let’s dance on broken mirrors
In search of the invisible
Moving to phosphorescent sound
Around floating shards of light
In a slow motion confetti collision
From a traveling globe
Reflecting flames of glass
Flashes of movement from radiant spirits
Through the spinning optical twilight
The night is endlessly bright.
“Life is a combination of magic and pasta.” -Federico Fellini
