From SHERI1969 ~~~this brought tears to my eyes, I had to share this with you!!
LISTS TO LIVE BY - SIMPLE LIVING
THINGS TO FEEL NOSTALGIC ABOUT
A barefoot walk along a sandy beach.
A quiet visit to the place where you were raised.
Listening to a rippling brook running over the rocks through a forest of autumn leaves.
Singing the song of your alma mater.
Looking over childhood photos in the family album.
Watching your now-grown child leave home.
Standing silently beside the grave of a close personal friend or relative.
The smell and sounds of a warm fire.
An old letter, bruised with age, signed by one who loved you.
Climbing to the top of a wind-swept hill.
Getting alone - all alone - and reading aloud.
Christmas Even, late at night.
Certain poems...certain melodies.
