However last night, I noticed that we already had two electric fans on at the same time, and when made known of this, my matey and partner had said, what do you expect, it’s summer already. Ach so.

As all nostalgic feelings go, it denotes, or just may hint at, an effort to escape from the present, even for a brief moment. As such, Hiraeths may be what daydreams are made of then. Or maybe for the less sentimental, a less sizable amount of them at least. However, in my case they extend further to some dreams even. I may have already forgotten a lot of things now, but I still pride myself in thinking that I could still describe, in detail, the setup of our old house in Ponciano Reyes street, and the
in Bajada, I have always dreamt of the Ponciano house. In my dreams, the setting would always involve a walkabout of sorts, going from room to room and as I recall, always marveling at whatever new things transpired usually during dream states.

On the other hand, some maintain their physique in order to keep their wits together. They are the ones who religiously pose on social media, posting minute measurements and details of their diminishing waistlines and golden six-packs. But who’s complaining? Two summers baby! That’s better than griping and whining, is it not? We’ve no other to run, even in a relaxed quarantine, except maybe in the open road, socialdistanced and safe from the rest. Some have even done yoga, which is a good deal. Just stay healthy. I’ll just keep my supply of Hiraeth stocked for the moment because as a new friend had said, that old home of the past is always… Where the heart is full and the soul is understood.
