    Little History Lessons

    The twangy noise of a steel guitar and the voice of Wynona Judd, (then a member of "The Judds") comes on the radio. I am six years old again, and my mama is teaching me harmony. We're in the car, and I can remember the texture of the car seat on my bare legs, the wind...

    Especially Guns N' Roses

    I don't know what it is about GNR, but their songs always bring memories back to me. Sweet Child O' Mine in particular.

    Music is such a wonderful way to bring back

    memories or feelings. There are some songs that I associate with certain people. There are also some songs that just trigger certain emotions. It seems like there is always a song playing in my head, background music I suppose.

    What is it about being 40+ that makes me listen to songs so I can go back and relive experiences in my mind? I wonder if people think of me in the same way. I wonder if I am part of some person's memories.....

    Any Remotely Good Song

    You can tell easily who is just singing and who is expressing emotion with music! I am often moved to tears, or joy by music. Music is a deeply spiritual experience for me - I never feel as alone with music playing!
