Going back to old things

A good friend sent me this quote today. The memories of the holidays I’ve taken, the cities I’ve lived in, and friends I’ve made along the way. We have them as we remember them, but those moments and feelings now only exist in our minds.

Hemingway captures it perfectly.

We can’t ever go back to old things or try and get the “old kick” out of something or find things the way we remembered them. We have them as we remember them and they are fine and wonderful and we have to go on and have other things because the old things are nowhere except in our minds now
