Today my son and I were out running some errands. In one store the background music was a tune I knew from the 1970’s, something I hear more often than one might think in malls and stores. I commented to Jared that the song was from my teen years, something I had no fond memories of whatsoever. He asked, did I mean the song or the teen years? ‘Both’ was my response.
I’ve read that, of the many things which can trigger memories from even decades ago, smell is the most powerful. I find music to be both a blessing and a curse in this regard. But among sights, sounds, smells, places, situations and all the others, what will most likely trigger a strong memory for you?
