Re-wind. Play.

2008_0708school0038
The little bully, the physicist and the big always-happy-guy.
None reminds me of me.
But I recognize all of their faces, even the shy little one.
It was as though I had found an old journal, cleaning up the room - its paper crisp and yellow: A little crisp-er than meant to be, and writing a little grey-er than it once used to be.
Some memories have names, and some do not, but they are all hazy, warm, and dirty from a day of play.

I miss school.

dhanya: It's funny how we think.
Girls look back and see ribbons. Guys look back and see gangs chasing pigtailed girls.
:)

heh?: I walked in, not sure if I will find one familiar face. But then there were some (very) old timers who spotted me in the crowd, and took me around to meet all the other oldies - which was seven of them in all.
They said i looked just the same .
I wasnt too happy when I found a few of my pictures in the annuals archive at the library - Thick glassed, and Mickey mouse shirted
:0)

did i make you sad with that exercise? i guess nostalgia is good, like I have commented elsewhere, it shows that you have a rich and "rememberable" past
