Where were you when the news broke that Elvis died? Are you old enough to remember the day that President Kennedy was shot? And how well do you remember your first date? The birth of each of your children? Your wedding?
Experience changes us. And while you might hear about the experiences of others, there’s nothing like being there. Experiences are “whole body” events, and their corresponding memories include all of the sensual and peripheral elements that so enhance a personal engagement.
The electricity in the arena’s air just prior to “The Rolling Stones” rock band appearing on the concert stage is palpable to those who’ve had that experience. It is a feeling hard to describe. Similarly, photographs do little to convey the experience of being wrapped in Scotland’s heavenly gloam (the extended light of dusk) as one walks down the 18th fairway of the Old Course at St. Andrews.
