Snow on the Sahara

by HelluvaGirl

Since I was a teenager, this song would arise very strong emotive associations which I’ve never tried to put into words before.

Tearing longing; feelings that outlast relationships or people, tragedies or impossibility; being left alone without a choice but to love…

Have you ever experienced strong feelings that were sort of… not yours? Not in any way invoked by people or events in your reality at that time, but nonetheless undeniably familiar and present in your self, as if you were a street and they were cars driving it? Perhaps it’s the power music has over us – to lend experiences…

The funny thing is, years pass, you listen to the same music and relive the emotions – or should I call them memories? – only now your reality supports them, as if a missing part of a picture is there. As if a reason finally joined the outcome.
