Recurrent Thoughts

I’m not a big reunion buff, but the one I attended made me freak out.

Not because I didn’t want to see people many of whom I lost touch with but because I wanted to remember them the way we were when we were in school together.

Would you believe me when I say I can still hear the voice of my best friend who left us too early in life – I can see him in my mind and hear him as if he was sitting right in front of me.

In radio, program directors like I was play the hits over and over again but what makes them special beyond the sound and the words is where we heard the songs first, what they mean to us and how they make us feel now.

In life, the vivid images in our minds and the strong voices in our ears is a reunion of the soul – we play it once and then, like radio, replay it again and again.
