…but music is like a soundtrack to my life. Sometimes I hear a song or a band and it takes me right to a time or place. There is one album that has been on my iphone since the day I got it. That’s a rare thing because I’m always switching new stuff in and out. Whenever a song from this album comes on, I quickly skip over it, but I never delete it from my phone (weird huh)
Earlier this week a song from this album came on when I was coming home from school, and I let it play. I needed to find out why I couldn’t listen to it or delete it. I closed my eyes and took a journey back.
It brought me back to a place of happiness and sadness in balance. It was the winter I posted a comment on a blog for the first time and made a new friend. Then many more friends followed. It was also the winter that my dad kicked my ass and I ran to live with my uncle. That winter I had and lost my first boyfriend.
This album was there through it all. I listened to it every day. Some days it’s all I would listen to. It’s the reason I wanted to learn to play guitar and make my own music. I can’t ever delete this one. It is very special to me.
