the wonder of memory


listening to a song i heard first in college, i am astounded by all the memories it brings up. once again i am nineteen and just getting to know someone who i will fall desperately in love with. this song connected him with a girlfriend in high school and their very dysfunctional relationship. at this point i am totally one over by this beautiful connection we have through shared music.

now nine years later i can say that as much as that relationship really did a lot of harm, i realized the beauty and connection one can have through music. it is a profound and wonderful way to connect with another. thanks to him, i have learned to love the gift of music that i am offered by other.
