Mom & Dad
Well, earlier this year, we went up to see them because it had been almost four years since I saw my mom and dad. It's expensive to fly up there and our cars haven't always been the most reliable in the world.
So needless to say I miss them fiercely. At random moments I'll hear a song or see something that reminds me of them and I start to cry because I miss seeing them. So what I have found myself doing lately (and not even intentionally) is listening to the same music that my mom listened to when I was growing up.
It also says a lot about me too. When I was younger my mom and dad played The Beatles, James Taylor, Micheal Bolton just to name a few. I liked Micheal Bolton, but The Beatles - bleck. I couldn't stand them. Their songs were dumb and I didn't understand the meaning or the point.
It's nice to have these memories. It's also nice to know that the person I am continuously becoming is someone my parents would be proud of because in a way I'm becoming like them: mature and responsible.
