On holding hands with two different forms of nostalgia
I absolutely love the coffee metaphor you have here about nostalgia. And even though the way you are describing the two forms of it seems very analytical, it is actually totally relatable and true. I feel that combination often and completely understand you. I feel like we needed this piece. I feel your heartache and the anticipatory melancholy of what you are both leaving behind and returning to. Somehow, I feel nostalgic FOR you being there in some way. Happy to have you back and also feel the shift from where your writing and thinking and existing will be taking place.
