Remembering

The Take it Further Challenge for February is based on the question, “What are you old enough to remember?” or this color palette:

taken from this thread combination:

I’m not sure if I’ll use the colors yet.

I am 31. Most of my memories are based around what songs were on the radio or playing in either of my families’ homes. When I was six, or maybe a little older, I made a tape recording of myself singing. My choices? Bob Marley’s “Get Up, Stand Up,” and “Maneater” by Hall & Oates. Hilarious.

My mom and step-dad took me to one of Bob Marley’s last concerts, in Santa Barbara — the “Survival Tour” that is now out on DVD and used in PBS pledge drives was filmed at the very concert we were at, in 1979. All I remember is the usher giving me cotton for my ears when we first got there, and climbing all the way up to the lawn in the back of the Santa Barbara County Bowl. I was three and a half.

Now to try and sketch something that says something about these memories.
