Eerie. Sad. Beautiful
This cartoon and I crossed paths this morning. Lynda Barry is a genius as far as I am concerned. The artwork is not all that, but I think it is something anyone can relate to. The cartoon talks about how the sound of cicadas reminds her of a terrible event in her life. I know that I have music that takes me back. And smells! I think smells are the most memory evoking stimuli there is. Memories are funny that way. In a great many cases we do not have control over what we remember or why. Memories - some good, some bad are always waiting for that one thing that can take us back. And really all we can do is ride the ride, go where it takes us.
