The first part of June was spent celebrating the graduations of three of my children. I had two graduate from 8th grade and one from high school. Just hearing the Pomp and Circumstance’ graduation music nearly always brings a tear to my eye. I have a similar response to the wedding march. Graduations and weddings signify such huge life changing milestones. My brain has made the association so that just hearing the music causes the reaction. When I was actually the graduate and the bride I didn’t have the appreciation of the significance that I do now. I guess that is life experience.
There are other things in life that when I hear or see them a certain emotional reaction is stirred. What are some life’s moments that you have a predictable reaction to?
