It Was Stupid, Really

 

I was driving in my car.

And a song came on.

A song from a long time ago.

A song that immediately conjured up vivid and powerful memories.

Memories of a time when I felt empowered, encouraged, on fire for life.

A time when I had broken chains, felt the freedom, and found out what I could do.

I cried while I sang along.

And I smiled.

It was stupid, really.

Not really.

  1. I do that all the time, it’s why I still use my car radio, instead of programmed music !

  2. Definitely “not really” – music is attached to many powerful memories!

    I am so tempted to guess the song … ‘American Pie’ (too easy) or ‘Ophelia’ (long shot). Help me out here! πŸ™‚

    • Hahahahahahaha! Oh Jim, you make me laugh. Okay, it was “Ireland” by Garth Brooks. It was what I used for my first black belt test. It was the best shape of my life, emotionally and physically. What a time!

  4. Not stupid at all!! Wonderful!

    It’s incredible how music can have a big impact on our memories and emotions. They can play some mean tricks. And it absolutely is not stupid – but wonderful! πŸ™‚

  6. You are not alone. Music can take us back to wonderful times in an instant. The mind is a powerful thing. ☺☺ Thank you for sharing your memory.

  7. Ha,ha! Who hasn’t been there?

  8. As I ‘mature’ I cry at the littlest thing. Memories are more powerful these days. ❀ ❀ ❀

  10. It’s never stupid to cry, not really! Music, definitely. Words, definitely. Sights, definitely. Memories, definitely. In fact, anything. Never stupid!
