It is an interesting sensation to be transported back in time simply by the sound of the chords in a piece of music. Much like a smell can bring back emotions and memories, this music virtually pulled from my memory the time period when I first heard the band. As I listened to the song, there were only portions of it that actually instigated the sensation. Whiffs that stimulated my brain so that I recalled only what it felt like to live during that time. I didn't think of specific events or problems I had encountered, but instead I thought of the person I associated with the song and the time in my life. That person is gone, yet his essence still continues to swirl around me. I do not think about him a lot. I do not yearn to speak with him. I do not regret his lack of presence. What I feel is more a sense of nostalgia for the loss. So when I heard the song today, and whenever I hear a song by the same band, I remember, and I relish.
