As I'm writing this I'm recovering from a brief but nasty stomach flu of some kind. While not being able to eat much and feeling nausea I'm going through photos from two weeks ago when the plum trees were blooming. In time these pretty memories will invoke a feeling much similar to this lack of appetite when looking back in nostalgia. Maybe it's just the sickness or the sugary smell of the vibrant pink flowers that makes my stomach turn and my eyes long for an empty landscape to cleanse my mind and feel hungry once again.
It's my birthday today.
