Sentimentality

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 1:58 am

Do you ever find yourself reminicing? Of course you do, it’s quite the human trait. I find myself reminicing about obscure things. I miss strange things like The Bob Newhart show, laying in the grass in my backyard when I was a kid, my dogs when I was growing up, my grandfather…oddly enough (only knew him for about 3 months), the music of my high school years, my condo, and my first car. Why? Who knows, all I know is what I miss, in a way, defines me. The only consolation is that where I’m at now is inevitably better than where I was at those moments. I’ve got one hell of a familly – a wife that takes care of everything and makes a wonderful home, a kid who I know is going to be bigger than life (he already is), and even the dogs have an impact on our future. I can’t explain….

I miss silly things like my first job, my baby sitter – Mrs. Putney, Mc DLT’s, 3am coffee from 7-11 (you’d have to know me to even remotely understand), skateboarding before I got my drivers license, watching Star Trek with my dad when I was 4 with the purple blanket, a book called Sinbad and Me when I was in elementary school, the snow storm of 1990 in Seattle,….on and on and on. I’m sure we all have tons of similar recollections. The thing I quandry is how to determine what will be a fond memory later in life as we are currently experiencing the so called phenomenon. Hmm. I guess that means we need to cherrish every moment, eh?

So what’s the point of this post? Dunno. Sentimentallity I guess and the rememberance of all that defines who we are. Maybe I need to pay homage to all that I’ve encountered in my life since they, in their own minute and unique way, have helped to define who I am.

All I know is that what I’m experiencing with this move to L.A. is going to be a memory in the future, I’m hoping it’s going to be a fond memory and will help to catapult our familly to better things and opportunities. I also hope that this experience will not eventually be the cause of Hayden going on Operah to talk about his family experience…we’re all just doing the best that we can.
