Music, songs, and lyrics are topics that often crop up in this community - some talk about finding comfort in songs, whilst others may struggle to listen to old favourites because of the memories they trigger. I was reminded of these conversations when I read a moving blog on our main website, written by someone who is running the London Marathon this year in memory of his mum.
"It's amazing how you can attach feelings to a song, which will forever draw an emotional response"
Ryan talks about Coldplay's song 'Everglow', which for him is forever associated with his mum:
"When I think of Mum, it always seems to be Coldplay songs that come to mind. The lyrics of Everglow and Christmas Lights both resonate so deeply, whilst the introduction of Charlie Brown would instantly make me think of Mum and bring tears to my eyes, both now and throughout Mum’s illness."
