The ways a place can hold you

There are different ways a place can hold memories. Sometimes you see them and other times you feel them. It might be just a breath, other times the feeling can consume you. But either way it moves you and either way it’s there.

Sometimes it can be like a waft of familiar perfume that makes your heart skip a beat.

As if your soul escapes your body for a moment and the only thing possible for you to do is stand there and feel it.

Sometimes I wish I could be like a tree – a documentation of growing pains.

You have more time than you think
