DOESN’T EVERYONE NEED A LITTLE NOSTALGIA?

Nostalgia,noun:

”A bittersweet longing for things, persons,

or situations of the past;

a twinge in the heart more powerful

than memory alone;

a feeling of a place where we ache to go again.”

Yes….nostalgia….I love it.

I love creeping into the recesses of my mind….

traveling back to the days that once were….

pulling out slices of my life to enjoy….

nothing more….just enjoy….

simply remembering things that warm my heart.

On this day I remember the  old pump  out by the barn.

Oh, the twinges I feel when I recall

grasping that long iron handle

and pumping water for the cows and chickens.

I smell the fresh water from the well

and hear the sounds of splashing

as it pours into the old wooden trough.

I hear the cows plodding to the trough

and sipping a cool refreshing drink.

I hear the chickens clucking and scratching

as they wait their turn to the water in the trough.

I hear the rooster crow a friendly familiar sound

as he announces the start of another beautiful day,

and I see the mist over the pasture respond

by moving silently up and away.

I am so blessed to have memory,

to be able to enjoy nostalgia.

The older I get the more it means to me.

In today’s busy complex world,

doesn’t everyone need to take the time

for a little nostalgia?
