#SoFarBehindSunday, #MemoryMonday, #TakeMeBackTuesday, #WayBackWednesday, #ThrowbackThursday, #FlashbackFriday, and #SendMeBackSaturday
Despite being a painfully nostalgic type, I myself have yet to actually post a throwback photo.
Guess I like it better when I revel reliving a moment someone else remembers. Like this one:
The photo itself is new to me. But not the memory! It is from my second time at The Archery Academy. The idea of nocking arrows has always remained a fantasy—that was until Kuya Torch presented the idea to friends.
Long story short: because the first time was a raving success, there were more archery sessions. The one photographed is the second and not the last! Plus Kuya Torch has been a student of Archery Academy ever since.
As with most archery sessions with us, it ends by hanging out with friends at a café. The default choice is Subspace. Being new to the circle then, I may have surprised them how much I could actually eat. Well, shooting arrows can work up quite an appetite!
Now, while I do have the photos of the food I ate there and recall how much I liked what I ordered, I cannot remember the exact sensations I felt. Even if I go back to my posts and see how I raved about each one, I could not describe any of it in full detail. The K-pop songs are garbled in my head. The senses are dulled. And the place is a blur. I cannot remember what desserts they offered that day.
Isn’t it funny how memory works? You could have the whole photo but not the whole picture.
Maybe that is why a good number of people post a lot of throwback stuff. It’s not just a walk for the memory—it’s a jog! After all, there are things we don’t want to forget so easily.
