Nostalgic journey

Walked over to aged father's house this afternoon to pack up the rest of my crap which has been sitting there for over ten years now. I knew it was mostly clothes, but had no idea how much other stuff there was. I had sent over six big boxes earlier and took with me seven large recycling bags in preparation for this adventure. Three hours later, I was not quite finished, but had seven bags of clothes and four boxes filled. Once I got home and unloaded the stuff, I started in on the sorting aspect, and began multi-tasking... Needless to say, I am not quite done, and ended up also looking through and scanning in some old photos. I was starting to get a headache around 2AM and my brain and eyes were tired, but didn't stop... perhaps I should have. Oh... I also started writing a rather lengthy blogpost, but was not able to complete it... so... I figured I'd write a quickie prelude post. Dumb idea... Now I'm fried.

Anyways, I think the high point of all this was revisiting the past through all the old pictures. Whilst I was sitting on the floor looking at a boxful of old family photos and some landsapes that I had taken way, way back, I was also sifting through songs on a few CDs that I had brought back as well... The song that started playing was this:
I wasn't really familiar with the song, but it just seemed to have an odd kinship to the pictures I was sorting through. Not sure why.
