It's funny how different senses can bring you back in time to a specific memory. For example, when you smell a particular perfume on a complete stranger and figure out that it is the exact scent your girlfriend wore the night of your first kiss... or if you hear a song on the radio that you haven't heard in a while and your mind immediately escapes to a moment in time where that piece of music meant something to you. I have these experiences quite often and it's cool to know that I'm the only person that knows the stories unfolding in my mind and wondering what ones may be resurrecting in other's minds as well. Tonight I was in Holland at a concert where my good friends, AG Silver were performing. I've known these cats since college which means I've been listening to their music for a good 7 years now. The last time I saw them was about 5 months ago, which happened to be the first night I called Virginia. I left her a voice-mail and I figured that if she'd call back it would be in the middle of the concert and I wouldn't be able to answer... and I was right. I remember the song that they were playing at the time I saw my phone light up with the name 'Virginia' on the caller ID. Tonight I couldn't help but be taken back to that exciting moment when they started playing that song: "Can't you see, can't you see, you're the one who's making sense of me..." I'm sure that I had a silly grin on my face, but that's okay... I'm the only one who knew why.

This is such a cool post. I love it when something through the senses triggers my mind to another time and place.

P.S. Thanks for the encouragement!
