On My Mind: Note To Self--Reminiscing (1)
There was this time in my life where I would write letters to other people that I wouldn’t send. They were essentially notes to self when it came down to it, or even one page journals. I saved almost all of them for the sake of amusing myself whenever I would read them again. And every time I come across them in the process of organizing, I have a good time reading my thoughts from years past.
These notes to self were written in the area of 2003-2004, which is getting close to being a decade ago. It seriously still feels like yesterday, despite all that I’ve gone through between then and now. Thinking about the thoughts that used to run through this quirky little head of mine is oddly eye-opening. I observed a lot more than I ever gave myself credit for. Then again, I didn’t have a job or many responsibilities in those days.
In any case, I didn’t really accomplish much since as soon as this thought came into my mind I had to pick up the laptop and write it all out before I forgot the exact nature of the feeling I was experiencing at the moment otherwise it would be lost for all eternity. And one run on sentence later, I’ll be getting back to business.
PS: “Reminiscing” is the name of a song I adore AND the theme song of last summer’s WIP.
PSS: I took these pictures. The sand flower was made by me on a trip to Michigan, and the autumn shot is taken at Mohican State Park.
