Music - part 1

Music has always been and will always be a huge part of my life. I am a music lover and was once a singer (I still sing at home and in the car).

I know I will post many, many times about music and songs and the feelings and memories associated with them -- which is why this entry is titled "Music - part 1." I expect many more parts to follow.

I found this song online today, and I couldn't be more thrilled. C. and I first heard it on honeymoon. It was playing on the rental car radio as we drove all over the island of Maui. I listened and gazed out the window at the stunning and peaceful beauty of that place. I made a mental note to look it up when we got home, and I finally had the chance today to find it.

It is a beautiful (sad, but thankful) a cappella piece by Keali'i Reichel called "Wanting Memories." 

Memories, indeed. I will always have the memory of the pure love and joy I was feeling that day when I first heard the song. So in love with C., so in love with life and so ready for the next part of our journey that we had just begun together.

C., this one is for you. May we always have those Hawaiian memories and may we make new memories together every day. I love you.
