READING NOSTALGIA BORES ME

    There’s that fine line between nostalgia and “good memories” and reflective moments that have true meaning. I choose the later. Nostalgia is of little interest if it has nothing to do with who you are and what you’ll be today and tomorrow.

    Another amusing and pertinent post, Viga! I’ll read anything that doesn’t bore me though, even nostalgia. However, you hit the nail on the head–life is getting too short for me to read anything boring. Even the classics that I’m supposed to have on my bucket list, but that make me want to scream with agony. Sorry, I’m just not that cultured.

    Dear Viga,

    Here I am again.

    There is nothing wrong with you not liking nostalgia. I think you do like to reminisce, however, you do not care to hear detail, after detail of a description–you are a “Get to the point” kind of person. It is good that we are all not the same, and that we can celebrate the differences. In order to do the latter we must sometimes listen a little. After all, as a writer, that might possibly be the place of some great writing ideas regarding your mother as he knew your mother and has no you longer than than anyone on this earth. I am a great believer in photo browsing for thoughts and memories. Just saying.
