Nostalgia is a feeling I think we all battle with, and it is completely defined by user experience. This means you get to decide whether you look back on a moment with longing, affection and gratitude or melancholy, loneliness and regret. I personally think that nostalgia is an action verb. I sometimes feel the deep, soul-yearning longing for a moment before it even has the chance to become a memory. I feel nostalgia for the present moment. And when I feel that feeling, I know. Because my stomach twists, my heart breaks or I cry for no reason. That’s when I snap the picture.
