sometimes something comes up in my life in the present that reminds me of a time in the past… as soon as i remember it i remember everything else that relates to it that had happened.. eventually i find myself in an almost endless loop of new-old memories. i suddenly get that feeling of tunnel vision and everything feels like when alice falls down the rabbit hole.
a strange thing happens though — after i’m done falling into my past memories and come back into the present i notice that my breathing has slowed down and i start breathing harder trying to gasp for more air.
this isn’t some cheesy emotional post — it physically happens — do i stop breathing or something? it’s happened almost every time an old memory is triggered — nuts.
