I probably go down memory lane more often than I remember. I ask myself, “Is it because my memory is short”? I don’t think it is that short because each day I add new memories to think about. This means I have to travel farther each day to get back to where I was thinking about today than I did yesterday. You can understand that, can’t you? I want to talk to you plainly so I don’t trip you up. Memory lane is just that – a memory. It is not something that you can walk on and stumble across learning something new on or even stub your toes on and fall.
Memory lane really isn’t a lane at all. It isn’t even a path. It, especially, is not a free-way or a high-way nor even a by-way. In fact it doesn’t go anywhere but this is where it really gets weird. You can be anywhere and start taking a trip on it. You can be in your car and start down your memory lane and not even have turned the keys on yet. You can be walking down a country lane that reminds you of something years gone by and you begin walking on memory lane. Weirder than this you can be almost dozing off in your comfortable chair and begin this trip and you are still setting in the chair where you were.
Like I said, “It doesn’t go anywhere.”
Now one of you just asked, “If it doesn’t go anywhere, why should I get on Memory Lane?”
Well first of all, memory lane in not something you “get on to” but it is something you build. It is what you live and your memory holds on to part of it so you can relive that part of your life again. Memory lane can have two parts. One is full of all you thought or did that was fun and enjoyable. The other lane may be one of pain and all unpleasant activities. Many times these two lanes don’t cross but then again since they are imaginary (not real lanes), who knows what they might do or where they might go.
So are you ready to take a trip down memory lane or just put reading this into your memory and say, “Why was this ever written”?
