When the sun rise or sets the days grow warm or cold depending. Sometimes, you can feel the warmth that is coming from the sun and sometimes you can't. It is all about the sensations that we can feel. Something I know and not everyone recognizes is that sensations are not always about physical feeling but at the same time the sensations are almost always purely physical. When I first started writing this, I felt as though maybe I was philosophizing or over thinking this topic. The more I thought about it the more I decided, "Who cares? Part of writing is sometimes over analyzing or over thinking a subject."
If you made it this far, I want you to stop and think for a minute Close your eyes and let your mind wonder all the way back to something in your life. Go all the way back to your first kiss with the one you are with now (or the most recent subject that applies in this instance). Let your mind remember how it felt. Think about how their lips tasted or their skin smelled. Think about the exhilaration you felt when your lips met. All these sensations from just a single moment in your life. Now, set that aside as best you can and let your mind wonder all the way back to your very first kiss, ever. Think about the same things. Those feelings will maybe be similar maybe not but they will definitely be completely different and this will be especially apparent when you start to, inevitably, compare the two.
My point? Well, the main idea is that we, as human beings never stop and considering just how much sensation we have and feel in our lives. Every day, we have sensations. We feel things on every level every single day. The point is that it made me wonder why we say something was sensational? We are going to sensationalize this or that. In point of fact, it is already this we are just making the adjective part of the focus. So what then are we really doing? We are making something truly worth remembering on some level. That is not to say that it will always be good or bad just that it will be worth remembering.
Just something random that ran across my mind this evening and I decided it was time to share my thoughts about it.
