Itís strange...

Itís strange how it happens. Sometimes youíll hear a laugh, or an accent... sometimes it could be a look or the way someone does something oh so very simple and the memory gets a nudge.
It can feel like a tickle at the back of your mind or a slap in the face but what causes it doesnít matter.

The fact that it happens does.

Today is an opportunity, a day where time is made to think of things that many can thankfully only imagine and sadly others would love not to know.
Iíll be remembering as Iím sure many of you will. Remembering the waste and the loss of dreams both theirs and of those they left and remembering the sacrifice. Remembering those I knew, those I never met and of course those who came before.
Mostly though, Iíll be thinking of those that donít need a day to remember, those that always remember.

Iíll be remembering, missing...
... and thanking.

Mr Blue Sky.

Reminders also can be tied to sights, sounds and smells — and they can be unexpected. You might suddenly be flooded with emotions when you drive by the restaurant they loved or when you hear your friend's favorite song.

I hope you'd find some joyful and peaceful moments today and everyday.
