Concetta’s Journal – November
Past is present in all things beautiful
Ahhhh, nostalgia! The ultimate happiness influencer…
That overwhelming feeling which moves through our bones and swirls in our hearts. That sense of belonging. The cord connecting us all to the ancestral and ancient. It’s the intangible “home” that we carry around with us and hold oh so dear. It’s the flame which lights our senses when we are awakened to something sentimental, something familiar… Whether it’s the smell of home baked bread, seeing our Mother’s favourite garden flower, or hearing a bird singing outside our window, we come home, yet again.
As we usher in the holiday season (a time immersed in all things past yet present), we are swept up yet again. The nostalgia of traditions and family near and far, bring us untold joy. Memories of delicious festive fare, gift giving and frivolities! Reminders of childhood celebrations, bliss and reenactments of ceremony with loved ones, some perhaps past on, though dearly remembered. The Season brings it all back home to our hearts once again.
If you’re looking to stoke the embers of nostalgia and connect with days gone by, my retreats are always open.
