List It Tuesday (9/25) - nostalgia



Today is List It Tuesday, hosted by aimee at artsyville.  The list topic for the week is "things that make you nostalgic."  My first thought was photographs.  That's why people have photo albums, I suppose.

Nat King Cole and Natalie Cole
And music, of course.  I can tell you what year it was, when a certain song was playing on the radio.  Some music, like Nat King Cole and band music, remind me of my dad.  Here was a favorite song of my dad's, that Nat sang with his daughter, Natalie.



Also on my list are shells.  I guess I put that on because it makes me think of the ocean, which reminds me a lot of my childhood.  I miss the ocean...  Do I sound nostalgic?

I agree!
That's a wonderful song!
I love old photos. For some reason they just fascinate me. a time gone by...
Did you grow up near the ocean? I grew up in Maryland outside Washington, DC, 3 hours from the ocean. When I was a child our family vacations were to the beach. I am such a water baby!

Thanks for the song! I love the duet and the sentiment! Memories are what a good life are made of.

Very fun! I remember listening to Nat King Cole with my family many years ago... *winks* we listened to lots of records.

Lovely way to journal your memories. You do sound nostalgic and in need of an ocean fix. I happen to know where you can find one just an hour west of me. :)

You're so right about the photos & music triggering feelings of nostalgia. And I feel the same about shells. I have certain shells to remind me of special times at the beach...they're nice to have around.

I love this list!! I realised I completely left music off my list, but I am the same, there are songs that symbolise moments and years for me.

I am also fortunate that I still live near the ocean, I can't imagine been too far away from it.
