Nostalgia Good & Bad

A  L  O  H  A !
Carpenters by Yesterday Once More on Grooveshark
" We could never
 have loved the earth
 so well 
if we had had
 no childhood
 in it. "

George Eliot 

" If you're yearning 
for the good old days,
 just turn off
 the air conditioning. "

Griff Niblack

" Nostalgia is a file
 that removes the
 rough edges 
from the good old days. "

Doug Larson 

"It's never too late 
to be 
who you might
 have been."

George Eliot


is a visit to
hallways where
you lived,
 and breathed
a long time ago.

So much comes to mind.
Perspectives emerge,
forgotten joys
live once more
for the moment.

you cannot 
live there.

We must emerge
as from cinema
into the bright lights
of Now.

Don't remain
in the shadows,
peering out
with suspicion
and derision
at those going about
their lives today.

We call such 
shadow dwellers
"Old People."

Don't BE one!

Thanks for YOUR visit, Friend
