My freshman roommates and I created a playlist that really captured our time together. One of the bands that was on that playlist was Blessid Union of Souls. Did you ever listen to them? I loved them. Well, I was thinking about them the other day, and I purchased the album I fell in love with. I haven't listened to the album in years. It is amazing how music takes you back to places, people, and perspectives that you thought were long gone.
As I listened to the album, I was taken back to:
- Cinderblock walls in college dorms.
- Late nights working at the Scroll.
- Cargo pants and plaid shirts (I know ... that is a horrible memory for me as well).
- Movie nights
- Crushing on really old returned missionaries (23 felt really old back then!)
And a slew of other memories.
It is good to go back, mostly because of where I've come since then. But try it--bust out some old favorites and just let the memories start pouring in.
