I have a former student named Stan*. Iโ€™ve been sharing his commentary on Facebook for 3 years. Folks think heโ€™s funny. ๐Ÿ™„ In honor of his recent graduation, Iโ€™m going to start positing the stories here. Hereโ€™s our very first interaction, 3 years ago. ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ
Stan: Ms. Buddington, you like your hair like that?

Me: Yes...why?

Stan: *walks around me, looking at my head*

Me: *confused*

(Exhibit A: ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ 2016 Hair)
Stan: *goes into his notebook, scrawls something, rips a paper out and hands it to me, with a number on it*

Me: What is this?

*still confused*

I spent the day listening to #ArethaFranklin and getting emotional more often than I expected.

I have always loved Aretha Franklin. I even loved the eras that other fans would've preferred to pretend did not exist.

In tribute here are my favorite
recordings:

1/
"Don't trouble the water..."

My mom used to sing this song to me whenever I was upset as a child, which was often. Elvis performed her favorite version.

I loved the original, but for me it's Aretha rendition and it's incredible vocal arrangement .

2/

#Aretha was an instrument of the gods.

When she sang it looked both effortless and all consuming.

Like Tina, when Aretha covered a song the original often receded from your consciousness.

"Spanish Harlem" is Aretha's song.
