I note his Sherlock series because I recently saw a poster of Holmes with the words: “Sentiment is a chemical defect found on the losing side.” Perfectly stated by eccentric Sherlock, but not something any of us should adopt as our attitude.
Let’s refer to the lyrics of the famous song, Sentimental Journey.
Gonna take a sentimental journey. Gonna set my heart at ease. Gonna make a sentimental journey. To renew old memories.
Got my bag, got my reservation. Spent each dime, I could afford. Like a child in wild anticipation. Long to hear that 'All aboard.'
Seven, that's the time we leave, at seven. I'll be waitin' up at Heaven countin' every mile of railroad track that takes me back.
Never thought my heart could be so yearny. Why did I decide to roam? Gotta take that sentimental journey. Sentimental journey home.
We all need sentimental journeys to renew old memories and set our hearts at ease. For those who cannot make the entire journey, we can at least accompany them as far as they can go so as to ease their hearts.
