Written at a transitional period of time for me; a reflection of the good in the world and one of the things I believe defines me: optimism.
Wake up, breathe, it's the present
I never dream about the past but I listen to it
Old songs that I wrote, old project files, old photos too, old moments
Not in a 'wishing-it-were-all-back' sort of way, because I really like where I am right now
But in a 'I really enjoy feeling nostalgic' kind of way
I like seeing what old friends are up to
Whether those are human friends or old, forgotten music that hasn't changed while I have
And at the end of every time I do something like this, I say wake up, breathe, it's the present
I always look around where I am, what is around me, who is around me
Normally I'm by myself because nostalgia is something very personal to everyone
But I look around, and every time, every time so far, I've thought to myself
I'm doing okay, things are good, life is good
Life is good!
