Not many things make you more nostalgic than looking at old pictures. Yesterday my friend sent me a bunch of pictures of us that I’ve never seen before. Each picture takes me back to a different time, a different place, to a moment in time when all that mattered was that particular moment. Time is linear, but your memories are not. Some memories stick out more than others. You can remember things you did ten years ago in vivid detail, but you’ll forget what you had for lunch yesterday. Your memory is not perfect. But looking at old pictures will make you recall and remember things that you’ve forgotten about. Looking at old pictures is like stepping into a time machine and going back to the good old days, back to when the past was still the present. You can’t go back in time, but you can always reminisce.
