Pandora’s Box

I don’t know why I do these things sometimes…

Sometimes I do something that inadvertently leads to one thing then another and before you know it, I’m bawling my eyes out. And it’s not even because I’m PMSing. Today, I blame Pandora. My newly created station added to the events of the last few days just put me in a maudlin mood.

I don’t know what prompted me in the first place, but yesterday, I found a box of letters in the back of my closet that set me off down memory lane. I started thinking of how much time has passed, how some hurts remain while some has faded away. The things we’ve lost, the things we’ve gained and the lessons learned… there’s so many of them after a while.

Then today, just now actually, I don’t know what prompted me but I started rummaging through my online closet, Photobucket. I hadn’t looked at the photos from my grandmother’s funeral in months and I don’t know why, but today I decided I would. Wouldn’t you know it, as soon as I start viewing the photos…. Somewhere Over the Rainbow starts playing on Pandora. It gave me goosebumps and brought tears to my eyes. You see, Somewhere over the Rainbow is what we played to send my grandmother off on her final journey.

Is it a coincidence? Serendipity? or an Omen?
