Newest Memory

Tonight, on my walk with Stella, I made some new and fresh memories with an album. One of the things I love most about music is its ability to make you feel.  But as wonderful as it can be to turn on a song and be instantly transported back to being thirteen years old, or to that summer evening on Delmar, or the day I received my first record player and listened to my first 45...it can also be take me right back to that gut wrenching first heartbreak, or the day my dad moved out of the house, or the car ride home from my grandfather's funeral.

It's refreshing to find new music, it's like a blank canvas. I am free to make memories that can then be associated with said music from here on out.

Tonight's memories consisted of me singing to Stella as we headed down the street, breeze blowing in our hair(fur), sweating(through pores/tongues), and walking perfectly in sync. A simply lovely, new memory that this album will now always take me back to.
