I was recently reminiscent. I thought that I was missing people (aka the list of ex-boyfriends), which was frustrating. I planned a snarky, chopped up photobooth set of photos to accompany this playlist of memories, but in the process, I realized that the person I was missing was me. I was longing for those emotionally saturated moments, full of hope and impulse. The magic is that a song can bring that moment back, make you remember it, and lead you to new moments.
