Writing yesterday's post, and getting all tangled up in researching the people and events referenced (I'm a little compulsive here) drew me into a swamp of nostalgia. I downloaded some music, songs that I had not listened to in at least a decade. (Amazing that one can now obtain individual songs in seconds, and for pennies.) I looked up people that I haven't seen in a quarter century (and found some of them.) Wallowed in sentimental memories. But then it was time to stop. All this leaves one question - I am very happy with my present, so what makes me miss what is long past? I guess it's simply that it's past and beyond retrieving.
