Hello, and welcome! This podcast Episode, The Secret City, is number six in the series from the new musical, Tales of Tila. I am your host, Carolyn Murset. If you haven’t yet listened to the earlier episodes in this series, it might be a good idea to do that now, then come back. The stories might make more sense if you listened in order. Many thanks to those of you who have already sent me your story contributions. It would be wonderful if more of you family members sent me stories. I’m waiting for your memories of Christmastime at Grandma Tila’s house. Remember the wall to wall kids sleeping on the floor in the living room next to the Christmas tree? The biscochito cookies? Hola! This is Tila Miera Trujillo. Not really, it’s her granddaughter, la Carolina pretending to be me. I don’t mind. I keep waiting for her to be brave enough to be herself and use her own voice. But because of her, some of you have listened to my other stories and said to yourself, “Why in the heck would she do something like that?” I imagine she has a little free time now and then? Listen now and find out where Trujillo and I went during our spare time on the weekends, and who came with us. Learn about the next devastating worldwide event and how it affected our family. Learn how my Trujillo, our older sons and nephews became involved. Which family members or friends of yours have served in the armed forces? When and where did they serve? Find out what my husband might have had to repair because of my, uhhh, inexperience with uhh, well, just listen! Closing: Come back next time to learn one of the ways Trujillo and I communicated with each other. Find out who drove me and the kids who were still living at home the eleven hour journey to Mesa, Arizona, and how long it took my husband to change his mind about going there with me. Do you want to hear my other musical stories? La Carolina would be so grateful if you’d listen to them! She wants you to subscribe, either there, or at iTunes or Google Play. (I’m still learning about all of these new inventions, because I’ve been gone since 1971, and have only used the radio, the telephone, the camera and what was that other thing…. Oh, We got a TV right before my Trujillo left. Black and white picture. Someone told me there would be televisions with a color picture someday. I also heard that you could get phone calls from your wristwatch. I think who ever told me about that last thing was making it up. Mentiroso! I get so distracted! Now. Then, look for the little brown square with my picture on it, with the words, Tales of Tila. You’ll know what to do from there. From what I hear lately, a three year old could show you how. That little square photo of me is a good one, isn’t it? That was taken when Nora was a baby, in 1930. My hair is combed, nicely, and I’m pretending she isn’t screaming her head off while my mother bounces her, off to the side of that backdrop, because six year old Lula is making faces at her. Hasta luego. Until later! You've just listened to Song Stories, Quiet Stories podcast, Episode 6, The Secret City, from the new musical, Tales of Tila.
