Larry, Susan & Judy 1954
It is current day, when I'm sitting at my desk eating lunch. As I munch on my sandwich I hear a train off in the distance, immediately, I'm transported to Rossville, Georgia when we lived across the street from Ceder Hill school, about 1954.
My minds view is that of a swing hanging down from a tree limb. It must be spring, not summer as I don't feel hot. It's one of those bright crisp days with a clear powder blue sky and the air is cool. It reminds me of a day when Mother did the washing, hanging the freshly washed bedsheets on a clothesline.
This has happened to me before, I've heard a train and again I've been transported to this same scene. I wonder why, what is the connection to hearing a train and my moment in time?
Has this ever happened to you, a sound will bring back a past memory?
