Day 5 – Song That Reminds You of Someone

Pink Floyd: “Wish You Were Here”

Picture four teens, summer of 1988, hanging out in the woods at a sleep away camp in Lackawaxen, PA. After hours of chatting, a silence falls on our little group. The guy I’d had a crush on the previous summer, who, up until that moment, I had never really spoken to before, sighs audibly, and says, “so.” I respond with, “so you think you can tell…” He adds, “heaven from hell..”

Thus began one of the most memorable, if not THE most memorable, summer of my life.

Today, that guy is still one of my closest friends. I love him dearly.

This song is his ringtone on my phone.
