It has been so long since I have watched a National Geographic special that I forgot I knew them. We have been watching them lately to supplement school. We watched The Incredible Human Body yesterday and one on volcanoes today. A couple of days ago got me started when I watched one on their photographers.
Now, when the trumpets blast, ‘ba ba ba bAAA bum, ba ba ba baaa bum…’ this flood of memories wash over me. My grandma and I used to watch the shows together! It is such a unique sensation to be thoroughly caught in a memory. When the memory is positive, such as this is for me, there is a desire to go deeper. But the deeper you go, to more involved the senses are, and it is almost dizzying.
We’ve enjoyed the films we have watches so far, and the queue is full of more. I am even more excited about watching them now than I was before. (I am a poet!) I will be learning, teaching my kids and snuggling with my grandma all at the same time. Phew! I hope I will be able to keep my eyes dry!
