The other day I was driving when I heard a familiar song playing on the radio. It was Bob Marley’s Buffalo Soldier. In fact, as I type this I can hear it playing in my head.
The funny thing is that the sound automatically took me back to my childhood. My cousins and I were sitting in someone’s living room. The radio was playing. That song was on. And my older cousin was sitting on this huge comfy chair while the rest of us kids were sitting on the ground.
Why do I remember this seemingly mundane event?
My cousin spontaneously began belting out the song, dancing to the beat and being as silly as a kid can be. We rolled on the floor and laughed until our sides hurt. It was a memorable moment. We were young, spontaneous and free.
How does this relate to this week’s top posts?
