Random memories just sort of hit you out of nowhere. Something that you don’t really think bout anymore, but then suddenly, there you are, thinking about it -like you did last week, or months ago. And in that moment it’s nearly as real as it was whenever it first existed. You can feel it in your stomach. A bit like being sick, a bit like a sense of longing. It makes your heart beat faster and your breath catch a little, and for a moment you forget whether you’re really present right now. But that very feeling in your stomach, your heartbeat, and your breath..because of them, you know it’s all real. And then the moment passes. Here you are again, breathing in the present.
