I was sitting hear listening to the radio and a song started playing that took me back a few years. It's amazing how a song can just bring up a time in your life and you re-live it a little bit in the few short minutes it plays, then when it's over, you kinda sit back and smile.
The song was Jack and Diane by John Mellencamp.
I was 15 years old sitting in a boat while my boyfriend Chris rowed out to a small island off the shore of Indian Head. When we got to the shore, he sat on a log and started patting his hands on his knees and started singing that song to me. He pulled me close. I thought to myself, I am so in love. It was a bittersweet moment. His parents were moving him to Texas and I would probably never see him again after that weekend. He was my first love, and my first.
I thought moments like that would come around often. I realize now that those are the moments I will relive when a song comes on the radio and takes me away, not forever, but atleast for a few minutes.
