Nineties Nostalgia Masquerading as Sixties Nostalgia - or is that Fifties?

I think a lot about nostalgia. Why do I like things from the past so much? Am I running away from the future, or neglecting the present? Is the vintage life healthy or unhealthy? Am I trying to create a perfect space where the past is ideal and romanticized? Is there anything wrong with that? For a Protestant, I could easily double as a Woody Allen New Yorker in therapy. What can I say, I've got an analytical mind. Ah, sod it - I love my old stuff. Boy, that sounded like a Carrie Bradshaw monologue. Better stop now.
