“But look at you, with the gift of memory. You can time travel to the good stuff just by closing your eyes & breathing.” Lin-Manuel Miranda – “Gmorning, Gnight!: Little Pep Talks for Me & You”
I’m amazed at the number of memories each of us can carry between our ears. What’s more amazing, is how quickly we can recall our favorite memories. Within nanoseconds, we can be transported to an event, a person, or a place in time. Lin-Manuel is right, our memories are indeed a form of time travel.
I think the recalling of memories is best done in the in the company of others with the same shared experience. To time travel with others via fond memories is a great blessing. The only thing more pleasing than recalling fond memories, is creating what will become fond memories with others.
Let’s make sure that as we’re traveling through life, were constantly doing both: recalling our fondest memories in the company of others, and creating some new ones as well.
