When I got out of the military I moved to Reno, NV. I had always liked the town, and thought I would enjoy living there.
I left Ft. Hood, Texas, and drove straight through to Northern Nevada. There were a couple of incidents along the way that were quite interesting, however telling them now is not the right time. Maybe one day I’ll get around to sharing the stories of those people and places that marked the journey forever in my memory. For now, though, I want only to write about a part of my first year in the Biggest Little City In The World.
I’ve written on this particular topic before. But when I woke up this morning, I again had these thoughts on my mind, thoughts that needed to be set free.
Very seldom does someone read what I write, but whether they do or not does not concern me. What does concern me is that I should get these jumbled ideas out of my brain so that others can take their place. So, if you desire to know what I have been thinking, read on. Otherwise, go about your day and let me be.
Six years ago I wrote this, and I’d like to share it with you again. While you listen to the tunes I’ve selected think back to those sounds, sights, and smells that bring a smile to your face What does it for you?
Music and Memories
Last night, while gazing up at a sky full of stars, the Milky Way clearly visible, I had the opportunity to witness the last burning glow of a few small meteorites as they blazed their way through the earth’s atmosphere. There were not a lot of them, but the half dozen I watched burn out seemed to bring to mind a time when life was much simpler. That thought led to all sorts of ideas rolling around in my mind, but the one that stood out among all the others was the idea that certain of our senses bring to mind memories of past times, both good and not-so good.
