Tears of happiness

Jason Mraz usually makes me smile and that's generally why I choose a song for the Music Sunday post at Experience Optimism. However, today my smile is bittersweet with  "93 Million Miles."

Jason sings of his mother, father, and experiences near and far, arriving at the conclusion, you can always go back home. For many, "You can always go back home," isn't necessarily true. Times changes, places change and people move on and sadly, ultimately, die.

Home stays in the heart, but is only a memory; and I find it to be one that brings as many tears as it does smiles. Open your heart and mind, share your tears and smiles, and memories with "93 Million Miles" by Jazon Mraz and then consider this quote from Elie Wiesel, "Memory feeds a culture, nourishes hope and makes a human, human."
