Nostalgia:

Whether an enveloping summer day's sun, or a wrapping wool-knit sweater that keeps one warm, creating memories within such–and all–situations, I'm convinced, is what humans do. We embed meaning in constructs, symbols, objects. Certain situations we build upon, and to this, we add yet another, until the process has repeated over and over again, and so those situations: second by minute, by hour, by day, and by year–all become constructs in themselves. With the help of May Sarton, I've come to conclude that: Perhaps then, that Amsterdam has taught me, is to be a little less intense and solemn about it all. And serious enough, yes.
