The Memories A Hard Drive can Provide

After receiving numerous threats from my computer that my 40GB hard drive was approaching maximum capacity, I took the plunge and purchased a second 200GB hard drive. Now I am oozing with power and space!

It soon dawned on me that I have two loves that can fill this space over the upcoming years. My music and photography.

The photos and videos will find their way onto the new hard drive in time as I go into production this fall. Right now, the music is the thing. I have what amounts to 200 CDs that are left of a collection that is my life in small plastic cases. As I have been transferring them to digital for immediate transfer to my portable devices, I am forced to surf through my life memories. It is actually quite pleasant in a sort of sappy way!

The subject this morning is a half dozen Suzy Bugguss disks form the 80s and 90s. The other day was Bob Seger, Mary-Chapin Carpenter, Jimmy Buffet and Huey Lewis & the News. The scenes go racing through my mind as many of the songs are played in the transfer process.

Scenes return in such detail. Driving in a certain vehicle that I once owned to a particular event. The scenery of Central Oregon comes back or the days of college. It is an unexpected trip through memories that I never thought the arrival of a new hard drive could provide!

Did you ever see John Cusack in "High Fidelity"? Your story reminds me of the movie in which his album collection is arranged in the historical order of his failed relationships with women. It's actually very funny.

Hi I haven't ssen High Fidelity". I remember it is one that I wanted to see, but as life's events occure. That one didn't work out. It does sound like my relationships with women and music though!

Kind Greetings and thanks for stopping by!
