I know that you have experienced a few deeply personal, profound moments that linger throughout your entire life, because I have too. These irreplaceable memories are at the root of your philosophy - they give you a definition of yourself. In recognizing the immense value of these moments, you experience true nostalgia. The wonder feels heavy in your chest, and makes you pause.
When I was very young, I was riding in the back seat of my mom's car, with the sunroof open on a clear summer day. We were on a hilly road out in the country, when I saw a great blue heron take off from a pond. It flew in my direction, and then inexplicably began flying directly above the car at the same speed as we were driving. I distinctly remember watching this massive bird through the open sunroof in awe. Now I love birds, but more importantly, I realize that this moment made a permanent impression upon my life.
As a child, it can be easy to immerse yourself in a moment. As an adult, regret and anxiety and stress get in the way. My friends and I have a project that provides an escape from the daily rigours of modern life. Together we craft songs about the experiences that have defined our lives. In order to fully express ourselves, we ignore all of the distractions, and freefall into the moment.
