While I was clearing some clutter and, as an added bonus, clearing my mind last month – I came across some older CDs.
Noticing the handwriting of a friend of mine on a CD made me recall what a wonderful time we had when I was visiting her one summer.
The colorful CD case of a certain album brought back memories of all those years when a friend (whom I no longer talk to because I can’t trust her anymore) and I were still best friends and inseparable.
A mix CD had me relive an afternoon spent at a distant friend’s house (same age as I) picking out the songs, burning the CD, talking – and reminding me how fleeting life really is because after that thought it occurred to me how he died in a car crash last year.
The title of a CD which has been played at a party a few years ago revived the memory of how after the party a cute guy walked me home, my jealous ex-boyfriend walked the both of us to my place then walked the guy home as well (I’m still puzzled on that one).
And many different CDs had me reminisce about many important people in my life and different periods of my life, with the good and the bad things altogether.
It’s interesting how, while CDs can’t record anything else besides computer data – they can bring up millions of memories the Heart records so well!
