Flashb(l)ack syndrome

I call it “Flashb(l)ack syndrome” … The only person to have experienced this phenomena apart from me is my sister .. Alright here it is.. Whenever my mum/dad or anyone tells a story that happened before 1980 , I can only visualize them in black and white .. The maximum I can do is with dull coloured lighting .. May be that is why I imagine my maternal grandparents as “monochromatic” people (oh no.. not in that way :p)..

So..I’m curious.. Is it just me or have you felt the same too???

    I think I am color blessed. Not only flashback but even my dreams are in vivid colors. My problem with flashbacks is that I ubiquitously see Cars & modern electronics in there and then come to realization that things were different back then! So is that the reason your gravatar is b/w? 🙂

      Colours in dreams… Interesting.. I think I see colours in dreams but when I wake up , I just remember the storyline .. sometimes, not even that 🙂

      🙂 Thanks for stopping by and commenting yaz .. Interestingly , when I watched “Mundhinam paarthene” song , I couldn’t accept it as a flashback song because of the colour 🙂

    Me too… but that depends upon the story 🙂
    I remember when my Grandma told me about how my home town looks decades before, I imagined it with lot of greens 🙂
    and when she talk about the transport..my imagination was black and white 😀

    Nice and Interesting Blog!!

    for me, it is colour and monochrome too, sometimes. but that depends on the characters and things in the plot.
