Asalaamu alaykum wa rahmatallahi wa barakato~
May the peace, mercy, and blessings of God be upon you~

Do you ever get waves of nostalgia washing over you, like being enveloped suddenly in the tide?

This happened to me today.

I so badly wanted to hear the noise of the locusts in the summer where I grew up, my heart hurt.

This noise reminds me of the heat and happy days and nights spent outside with my family and friends, catching fireflies and playing flashlight tag.  Reading in trees and looking at stars.

I used to lay on my back and gaze at the stars for hours, thinking how amazing creation is.

When was the last time you did that?

I miss being a child...
