There are times when this strange feeling comes over me - it's something visceral and usually, totally unexpected. And, unfortunately, fleeting.
It's usually something visual or aural that causes it to arise. And when it comes, I am momentarily unable to participate in whatever it is I am doing. For I am lost in time.
What happens to me is that I am overwhelmed by feelings, physical feelings, I felt as a child. I don't know how to describe it other than that.
It can be something I see on TV. Or a song on the radio. But something will trigger this feeling and it becomes almost like a fugue state.
It soon leaves and I am left with nothing but the memory - but for that brief instant in time, I have been taken back to childhood. And enjoyed the trip.
I know. It's weird.
I wonder if I'm the only one this happens to.
