Further and Further Away

This is a beautiful song that deals the effects of time on our memory.

Cheryl was thinking about 7th grade. In particular, she was thinking about walking down the hall in 7th grade with her boyfriend, Tommy Supick (sp?). She could remember exactly what he looked like, what he was wearing, etc. And then she realized that took place 30 years ago.

We can remember events that happened many years ago, or at least we think we can. As time goes on, our imagination fills in what our memory loses, and often we don't realize when it happens.

This song reminds me of an experience I had when talking with my brother about what it was like when we were kids. I found it amazing how different our memories are and how many conflicting stories we 'remembered'.
