Longing

The days have become short cold and we have mostly grey skies and I long for clouds like these in blue skies.  Fluffy clouds remind me of ice creams in summer. I complain so much about the heat and yet when it gets cooler I fall sick so often and start longing for warmer weather.

We always yearn for what we have not. The saying distance makes the heart fonder is so true. Memories seem even sweeter than reality. We tend to add a pink filter to our dearest memories and a grey one to those that aren’t as fond.

Memories sometimes become selective, we exclude those tiny details that bother us and fluff it up with the better parts of the memory. It is possible for people to fall into  nostalgia trap especially for those caught up in loneliness.

Our mind acts in strange ways, sometimes it is hard to understand the workings of our own mind.
