We are torn between nostalgia for the familiar and an urge for the foreign and strange.
As often as not, we are homesick most for the places we have never known.

Carson McCullers


Do you remember….your first summer vacation? Your first jump in the sea? Your first kiss? Do you…remember the feeling of carelessness? Pride? The tingles of excitement that marked them?

Memories lead us to an untouchable and protected world. Maybe at first sight these memories seem as they’ve faded, but it takes only a brief moment of reminiscing to encourage them to shine bright with all their colors.

A scent, a sound, a taste or a sight before our eyes that in an instant takes us back to the days when things were different, to the era when there were no smartphones and everything was not documented, but remained indelibly in our memory.

This precise moment is sufficient to make us remember, revive the emotion and decide to relive it through a bit different and mature point of view.
