Our entire journey that is life is made up of a zillion moments; instances; accrued.
Every instance, a byte stored somewhere in the nuclei of our mind.
When these instances and their experience are combined with an emotion, they become a memory. When we recall these memories of our experiences, we call it nostalgia.
Our lives are all interconnected one to another; animate to inanimate; into one large universe of everyone's memories, making all of our histories into one, in a manner of speaking.
We build subconsciously, on this palimpsest of historicities, an architecture upon an architecture, building upon a building, where instances are borne as we experience them in some environment; in a place, in a space. Moreover, to make these instances pleasurable, we must build beautiful places and spaces.
But our lives, whilst an accrual of instances are defined by nuances; unspoken words, body language, a closed fist , a flutter, a gesture, a breadth, a tone, a glint in the eye; an indication- a nuance.
