Nostalgia is such a thick feeling.  Tightness in the throat.  Joy.  Heaviness.  Rose colored glasses.  A multitude of opposing feelings that collide together all at once and all encompassing.  It usually involves vivid memories of things you didn’t really notice as they were happening.  Things you never expected to remember, or maybe are discovering for […]
