list it tuesday/ things that make me nostalgic

every smell that reminds me of scotland (wind, rain, sheep`s wool, the toasted cheese my grannie made), the videos of my son when he was small ( ah, the giggling!), duncan sheik`s song "serena", the movie beautiful girls, pain au chocolat, tuna baguette, victoria sandwich, the song "crazy mary" by victoria williams, margaret atwood`s poetry,the way my hair looks on old photographs, the notes my son wrote for me when he learned how to write, the bittersweetness of autumn colours, old letters.

Love this list. Some good family friends have just moved back to Scotland and I hope to visit some day.
