Live. Love. Listen.

"I grew up in a small town alot like Tree Hill. On the edge of town, there was an overpass above an interstate that went places. Exotic places. Exciting places.Somewhere else. I used to sit above that highway and wonder where all those cars were going. Where people inside were going. Or where they were coming from. And as soon as I got my drivers liscense, I became one of them. For me, there were always two reasons to take a road trip, and neither of them had to do with destination. The first was to spend time with good friends. To talk. To laugh. To live. The second was to listen to music. New music. Old music. Great music." - Mark Schwahn

This qoute is just a entry on a cd I bought, Its full of some awesome music. Its got this really good song called Crown of Thorns. Id never heard it until right now. In the same paragraph im qouting from this man goes on to say, how you can hear a song and relate to it at some point in your life. Certain songs remind you of a good memory from the past. Tom Pettys "Last dance with mary jane", does that to me. It remeinds me of a entire summer, I was in looove with that song, and that was the summer I first heard it.

Its not just things you hear or see that can bring memories back.. What about smells? Like the perfume you were wearing, or the smell of your hair on a night that something happened to you. Its like when you use that scent for the first time in a while.. it floods you with memories. I just put a new air freshner in my truck.. and as soon as I smelled it it brought back such good memories! You should always pay attention to the sights and scents and sounds.. they mean alot to.

Anyways today ill be leaving for New Braunfels again, hopefully the weather will be as nice as it was last weekend!
