Nostalgia

I've been feeling a bit nostalgic for my younger days recently. I'm not sure why; it seems that springtime always triggers this feeling for me. Maybe because it's prom season, or the anticipation of summer that is still very real to me because of my profession. Whatever the reason, it hits me hard at this time of year, and the bittersweet sensation of the passage of time blooms right along with the daffodils.

I got to revel in the feeling a bit this morning when I saw that the band that was such an integral part of my formative years is reuniting and putting out a new album. I'm a little embarrassed to admit that my heart fluttered just a little.

Sad, no?

  1. Nah, not sad at all. Anything that brings a smile to our faces is good.

    I got that way last night when my babysitter told me she will indeed be attending the college I attended. Didn't bring me as far back as high school, but it brought me back to some of the nicest times in my life. Times I do truly miss.

    Saw your comment on Swistle's post. Sorry about the coffee. That is a total drag.
