memory embraced…

Sometimes there’s a moment in your memory that stops everything.

A recalled scent makes you hungry.

A comforting sound makes you wistful.

A chill reminds you of a misty morning.

A sentence turns over in your mind.

A remembered shadow on the wall makes you tremble.

As much as I’d like to live in the now, there are always moments to cling to.  Fiercely.  Ones that remind us what not to do, and those we long to duplicate.  That let us breathe.  That remind us that the here and now is worth living.  And so is the future.

    This has been something that has come up recently, but for some reason has been something that I have embraced with a memory that I wish I could shake. I scent caused it two months ago, and it hasn’t escaped my thoughts since then. I wish it was a good memory. I wish it was something that let me be thankful for the moment that is now. I wish a lot a things, and this scent made it all come at me with a fury. I am not sure if or when this one will let me go. Maybe the issue is that I still can’t let it go.

    I totally forgot what I was going to say.
    But your future is so bright…
    Oh holy crap now I’m quoting 80’s songs.
