Again today, it’s not about me. It’s all about YOU! Yes, You!
Ok, I have to say, I was very pleasantly surprised when my idea for “It’s All About You” post last Friday was received so well.
Even more, I enjoyed the memories that the picture I posted brought forth in some of my readers. I mean I REALLY enjoyed them!
The word ‘really’ doesn’t describe my feelings well.
I authentically, categorically, honestly, no…INDUBITABLY enjoyed them. You guys are awesome!
I was touched by every one of your memories.
It evoked memories of loved ones,
and even memories of a favorite movie.
I think its a great chance to remember how similar and how different the experiences that shape our lives can be.
Ok, ok, ok, enough of me babbling and getting all sentimental.
As I was saying, I enjoyed this so much, I’ve decided to make this a regular or semi regular part of my blog.
On Fridays I will post a picture and I will ask you to tell us what memory or feeling it brings out in YOU. You can post your memory or feeling short & sweet in the comment section, or if it inspires a tale better left for your blog, please link said tale back to the comment section so we can all share in your creation.
This last Monday, when I took a day off work to wander aimlessly around the country side with G2 (my camera) and a good friend who lives in the area, we stumbled across something interesting. On some winding country road that I probably couldn’t find again if you paid me, we decided to pull onto a gravel road to turn around. As we did, we were at first taken by the view, but as I was turning around, something caught my eye down a slight hill off to the side.
After I knocked away the “What a shame this classic sits here, rotting away” feelings, I remember weekends during the decade of big hair (yes the 80’s) and teen angst. I remember a local Hardees parking lot where everyone cool cruised around in their cool, and not so cool cars and hung out sitting on bumpers, walking around, some smoking, until the cops came and chased us all away.
Ahhhh, the memories…..
Wait, this isn’t about me today, it’s about you.
Close your eyes (ok, wait until you’ve read this first) then close your eyes and go back, or not so far back…….
What memories does this picture bring forth?
