Anemoia: Nostalgia For A Time You've Never Known

"The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there." -L.P. Hartley

"Looking at old photos, it's hard not to feel a kind of wanderlust-a pang of nostalgia for times you've never experienced. The desire to wade into the blurred-edge sepia haze that hangs in the air between people who leer stoically into this dusty and dangerous future, whose battered shoes are anchors locked fast in the fantasy that none of it risks turning out any other way but the way it happened."

John Koenig | The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows 


I live my life in anemoia and I see through the eye of a memory.
