Music Transports You.
Music transports you. Takes you on journeys to moments in time. Memories of good times, bad times, happy times and poignant times. Music captures and freezes the thoughts of the past. Etched forever in your mind. You hear a song and you are there. The remembrance of childhood dreams, of first love, of love lost and learning to love again. The storybook of your life are written in the feelings of the music.
I remember that moment so vividly. A snapshot, a memory in the photo album of my life. My then wife and I were driving by a local park on a warm and sunny spring day. She spoke to me and the confession that she was having an affair, shook me, rattled me, brought tears to my eyes. This would be her first affair. This would be the first step down in a battle with my own personal hell. Her second affair nearly killed me.
And the song playing on the car radio as she spoke those chilling words, was the one in the video above. A haunting song. A song that reminds me of where I was in my life and how well I'm doing now.
Music transports you. Immerses you in the highs, the lows, your cares, your woes. Sense the moment and know that music and the passion that is your life, are intertwined. My friend, I leave you with the above song.
