Nostalgia

It's never safe to be nostalgic about something until you're absolutely certain there's no chance of its coming back. ~Bill Vaughn

I was watching TV the other day when I saw this ad for Brotherhood. Michael, one of the lead characters was talking about nostalgia and what it was. His short monologue struck something deep within me - pity I cannot remember exactly what he said. All that remains with me is the emotional effect.

I have been feeling off for the past few days but I have been fighting it. Off both physically and emotionally, perhaps due to a variety of reasons. Some of them I can pinpoint, some I can't.

When I feel like this though, my emotions tend to overwhelm me and the effects spill outward. I find myself yearning for something. For the good old days, maybe? For that thing that I have always been looking for? For things that I have lost? I don't know.

Maybe I just need to drink more coffee.

  1. I often feel as though I am yearning for something too, I don't know what it is, all I know is that whatever it is, I don't have it!
