Until Christmas a few days ago I didn't have a link or a connection in mind. In the years since 1963 I sometimes remembered 'Abba-leen' but nothing more. When I started to post clips from youtube three years ago I also recalled the word 'Abba-leen' and the melody when my mind had 'a walk in the American country-side' but I had no clue where it could be found because I had too little information, too weak mindlinks, sts.
Yesterday while re-reading some of my postings via google I stumbled upon the one with the miraculously persistent melody that had popped up a whole day long at the end of last January - as it turned out, it was from Franz Liszt, right in time, connected to a certain event from one of my relations to the past.
I said to myself 'this was another singular event, something too ab-normal, too off-road, too inexplicable to recur any time soon' - but I was wrong!
As if somebody wanted to teach me one more time a lesson and enforce my belief into 'higher benevolant spirits' I was subconsciously led to run around in various web pages when I stumbled upon a comment that referred to US President Eisenhower
there it was:
Abilene ... Abba-leen, Abba-leen.
Looky looky at youtube and I found what I had missed for many years and could not regain because the bits of info were far too weak. This is the first part of the story, and the other part:
The whole re-connection of 'Abba-leen' in my mind fits into a greater picture,
for the one 'in-the know'
even with the lyrics
and Southern Ontario
and the lack of snow
the rest of the story
From a point not-to-be-seen it's 140 miles to 'Abba-leen'.
"abba-leen abba-leen .... "

Thanks for that great little anecdote. Abilene for me is the quintessential country western song, sung only by him. Love the mood.

CO-incidences are all-ways
It depends on the relations and the personal awareness.
