Not all of them, but those popular during my early childhood bring much nostalgia for me. The Rockford Files, Quincy M.D. and Hawaii Five-0 seem to be the strongest. I know I’m ageing myself but age happens. You can’t stop it so might as well embrace it. When I was a child my bedroom door opened to the living room of our home. My parents would stay up an hour or so after I went to bed. I listened to these theme songs as they played on the TV my parents watched. These songs lulled me to sleep for years. My parents would talk quietly during the commercials. I was safe. It felt good. Even now, all these years later I find I hum these songs to myself sometimes. I’ve tried watching these shows but I’m just not interested in anything but the music. I think this is a body memory. Something I can’t quite put into words but is so strong it stops me in my tracks. I had a safe, loving and maybe a little too sheltered childhood. A stark contrast to my adult life. I enjoy the memory and safe feelings. I long for them.
