All The Books In the World, Except One

This was pointed out to me by  . Read it. It’s short, but thoughtful, touching and more than a little wrenching. Reflect back on the people that you knew and what they meant to you. That’s what I did.

It reminds me of a line from Mad Men: "Nostalgia – it’s delicate, but potent. Teddy told me that in Greek, "nostalgia" literally means "the pain from an old wound." It’s a twinge in your heart far more powerful than memory alone. This device isn’t a spaceship, it’s a time machine. It goes backwards, and forwards… it takes us to a place where we ache to go again. It’s not called the wheel, it’s called the carousel. It let’s us travel the way a child travels – around and around, and back home again, to a place where we know are loved."
