“NOSTALGIA” Often we reminisce about things in the past who has made us who we are today. From TV media, music, movies, cartoons, friends, family & life experiences these are influences of what can produce “NOSTALGIC” moments that we’ll always remember. We cherish & reminisce these moments on the other side of the glass of our memory’s museum because we know we’ll never get to feel that moment in the physical again. We stop for a minute in our present life, to think back about all “The Good Times”.
