What takes you back, back to the carefree days with the one you love? For me its the music by Creed, specifically the Human Clay album. When KS and I were dating he had a system in each car/truck he owned and this CD was one that he played frequently. Whenever I hear the music from it it just takes me back; like I have fallen into a time warp. I can smell his car and even feel the same inside as I did then. I can close my eyes and see us there driving, his hand on the shifter or holding mine. I can see his face and even remember the way it felt to hear him driving down the road to my house. My sisters would always run into my room saying KS is coming, Ks is coming! They have always loved him so much. We could always hear his system, or exhaust, drive past our house and then turn into our driveway. I know that if I am ever missing him or feeling the distance between us I can always turn on one of those songs and I will be with him again. Its amazing how music, a smell, anything that uses your senses can just take you back in time. It can remind you of something you might not have thought of for years, but because of that one emotional trigger its like you were just there, the memory fresh and vibrant. What is your trigger, what is it that takes you back to the place in time you always loved to be?
