Day 986: Reminiscing

Maybe it’s because I’m planning and attending a high school reunion next week.

Maybe it’s because of the time of the year.

Maybe it’s because my participation in different kinds of therapy often focuses on people’s pasts.

Whatever the reasons, I am reminiscing, big time.

Reminiscing can

  • help us move on,
  • keep us stuck in the past,
  • connect us with other people,
  • bring up memories we haven’t accessed for years,
  • cause all sorts of feelings (including joy, regret, anger, and contentment), and
  • be healing, at times.

Next week, there’ll be lots of reminiscing with my classmates from my hometown.  I’m thinking of questions to invite some reminiscing, such as:

  • What’s a favorite memory from school?
  • What’s an important lesson you’ve learned in life?
  • What’s something you’re grateful for?

I wonder how I’ll be reminiscing about that reunion when it’s over, on September 20th.

As you reminisce about that moment when you first read the title of today’s post, did you reminisce about this song?

I’m reminiscing, now,  about how I used to listen to that Little River Band song in the 1970s.

I’m also reminiscing about some photos I took yesterday.

… might cause regular, reminiscing readers to reminisce about Day 978: Loopy.

One more moment of reminiscing.  Last month, in Edinburgh Scotland, I met Anthony Rapp from the musical Rent.

Today, my son Aaron and my excellent relatives Deborah, Laura, and Victoria are accompanying me to see Anthony Rapp in a one-man show, where he’ll be reminiscing about his experiences in Rent.

What are you reminiscing about, now?

Reminiscing thanks to Oscar and other cats, to the Little River Band, to all those I love to reminisce with, to Anthony Rapp, to Play Time in Arlington, Massachusetts, USA (which is reminiscent of other great arts and crafts stores I’ve seen), to wonderful homes everywhere, and to you — of course! — for reminiscing with me here, today.
