Playing in the Background

I hear a song and get forever lost in memories. Music is often playing in the background as I go through the day in automatic; and it often reminds me of ordinary life events. Today, a song took me back to a middle school dance. I remembered nervously laughing as a boy failingly asked me to dance. I don’t remember dancing and I don’t remember the boy, but I do remember that weird feeling and the song. Music is an emotional and chemical mental scrapbooker. Like turning the page, it never fails to bring me back to a nostalgic moment once lost in my memory.
