Who, when in a pensive mood, does not revive past events, old friends, and happy times,
to bring these into the present lest they be lost into the void of forgetting? Let me breathe the air of my yesterdays, let me trace the paths I can no longer walk, let me be near to the places time has made distant. It is these thoughtful places which I seek so a part of my today can relive the places of my yesterdays.
