I was in the car this morning and "Africa" by Toto (old song) came on. There was the line:

"Mt Kilimanjaro rising like Olympus above the Serengeti..."

and I was hit by this intense wave of nostalgia for somewhere I have never been. I was nearly crying.

  1. I love that line you've used about the "wave of nostalgia for somewhere I have never been". Isn't it funny how songs can affect you like that from nowhere?
    Sometimes I don't even realise that I am feeling tired or emotional until I hear a song on the radio and then next thing I know, I've got tears welling up. Then I'm left with this sense of longing and sadness.
    The power of music, eh? :)
