The song you are now hearing played this morning on a local radio station and I fell smitten to the ballad. Not just because it's crazy good and possibly the coolest cover of a song I have ever heard, but also because it takes me back in time, back to my teenage days in a way that is mellow and almost like watching a movie of my past (and in my imagination the movie is really throw back and grainy like The Wonder Years opening credits on reel film). Sorry... I get carried away, but that gives you an idea.
I decided the best way to describe how I feel and what my mind sees when I hear this song, was to recreate the mood by picture. So, here are a couple pictures from my Christmas card trial shoot, to how the gold, sun drenched memories, now showing in my head.
Days were longer when I was younger. I don't remember being cold very many time as a teen. At this moment I am only able to recall these metallic and beautiful images that I want to jump into and savor (right now!), as I try to rub my feet against my sheets to warm them by friction. Oh Summer, hasten to me please!
Reality is a good thing to stay in touch with, but not to get overwhelmed by. So I think it's okay tonight if I fall asleep and let my thoughts and reminiscing evolve into dreaming, and my dreams prepare me for another cold day on which I am warm with love and gratitude (and maybe a cup of hot tea to boot!).
