I was in grade six when Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band released their album entitled; Against the Wind. In June of that year I celebrated my twelfth birthday.
That birthday stands out as one of my best because my big brother, Jim, gave me the 45 single release of Against the Wind. I spent hours in my parents’ basement listening to that song over and over again.
I just loved it!
Flash forward to September 3rd, 2014 and I am in my kitchen making dinner for my family. Against the Wind starts playing on my iPad and I am immediately transported back twenty-four years. I am back in that basement getting ready for my birthday party with my friends. I am wearing my canary yellow shirt with the matching pants (oh dear!!!). And before my friends arrive, I am making sure that Against the Wind is the 45 sitting on the record player so it will be the song that kicks off my party.
I have always wished that I could travel back in time. The idea of having the opportunity to visit or to re-visit the past just fascinates me.
