Life is a Playlist and I'm Gonna Listen to it All Night Long.
We've all experienced that moment when a random song comes on and suddenly you're transported back to a time that prior to those notes beating, felt far away. A memory that feels so distant, you now regularly never even recall it. It isn't until those notes and lyrics take over, and then you're back there.
You're back feeling the moments of those first dates together. You're driving in your first car with the windows down. You're at your cubicle of your first job. You're celebrating your best friends decent into marriage. You're dancing like you own the club on your 25th birthday. You're happy. You're sad. You're broken. You're healed.
No matter what the memory evokes, as the music plays on, we remember with certainty that it is in fact, a memory. It's a cherished moment from the past. We sit here right now with new songs playing that will one day create the framework around the time that is this moment.
In fact, there's an entire playlist of songs I have yet to hear. Listening to a song from one of yesterdays soundtracks, lets out a nostalgic tone along with the reminder that music keeps playing and all we have to do is listen and enjoy.
