On Nostalgia

By Marc Leavitt of Marc Leavitt's Blog

Nostalgia strikes us, now and then,
The same for women, as for men;
Those “good old days” when we were young,
The fun recalled, the sweet songs sung.

In memory our youthful dreams
Were innocent, or so it seems.
Our parents taught us right from wrong,
How we’d succeed, if we were strong.

The life we lived so long ago,
Before we learned what we now know,
Sometimes was hard, and never tame;
Nostalgia’s just a pleasant game.

Nostalgia is a game alright Marc. You nailed it.


I think nostalgia is when our brains begin to revolve backwards in time, and everytime I get a thought it is from a younger and younger time. The last memory, I think, waas when I was two.

Does this mean I will die in two years? Or just be around with no discernable brain? Of course many I know think that is right now.
