In the beginning…

…I created this blog.  The beginning of my blogging adventure.  An opportunity to connect with all of you on an endless array of topics and ideas!  Sometimes my mind works so quickly and so crazily I can’t keep up with it.  I try to write everything down: the observations I observe, the thoughts I think, the ideas I ideate.  So I created this blog in an effort to do so.  Your comments, praise, criticism and feedback is much appreciated.  So don’t be shy.  Really.

I am truly intrigued by the concept of nostalgia.  It’s amazing to me how certain stimuli tickle each of our five senses and cause us to remember our pasts.  Nostalgia though, isn’t just about our past and memories.  It’s a feeling we each get while engaging in remembrance.  Joy, sadness, anger, silliness, regret, appreciation, gratification, etc.  This isn’t just about nostalgia though.  It’s about flashbacks and memories.

I will be posting photos, videos, images, stories, interviews and other ramblings about all things that make me and others feel nostalgic.  Some will be extremely silly, while others will be heartfelt.  It is my hope that this blog triggers a conversation about all the things we used to love, and use to love to hate.


I leave you with two quotes tonight:

“Memory… is the diary that we all carry about with us.”  ~Oscar Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest

“Memory is a way of holding onto the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose.”  ~From the television show The Wonder Years
