Nostalgia - Moments of Life Fondly Recalled and Put to Good Use
Ah Yes! Feelings of sentiment for days gone by. Those were the days! Now you are looking in your personal rear view mirror, bringing a smile to your face- even many-many-many-many years later- and putting all you have learned to good use!
PRACTICAL ARTS FOR LIVING OUT LOUD
For you nostalgia could mean simply listening to The Beatles' Abbey Road album, scratches and all.
Or, sipping a frosty mug of A&W root beer.
Or hearing the sound only a souped-up 1949 Mercury can make rolling down Detroit's Woodward Avenue.
For Post 50 people, those carefree times can continue with good planning.
Against the Test of Time
these “young ‘uns” to us like we were to our older generations? Will
they “carry the torch” in the face of a
societal crisis…a major military aggression on our soil [think North
plague that hits large segments of population [think SARS], or an even
economic downturn than we just witnessed [think Great, Great
Depression]? The answer is, of course, unknown…until! However, if
history serves us, the youth
generation will rise to the occasion.
When push comes to shove, the prospects of not rising will override any
youthful reticence to come to the floor.
But the how it will happen can likely be traced to the mindset molded
during these highly impressionable days of coming of age. Those values noted in this study should stay
steady against the test of time.
Benjamin Franklin said that the only things we can be sure of are death and taxes. To that I would add that we can also be sure that things will change. And each ensuing generation will change as its environment changes.
What will the future be like? Well, to paraphrase Lamont Cranston, of 1940s
radio fame, “What change [evil] lurks in the future [hearts of men]? The Shadow Knows!!” So “Stay Tuned…but Be Watchful.” Charles Schewe
Here's to carefree times with lifelong pals.
Here's to meeting again on sunny days,
to high school hops, poodle skirts
and to turning the pages of your old yearbook...
AND HERE'S TO TODAY!
" The psychic
reorientation to a new worldview requires courage, service, sacrifice,
and intellectual vigor.This journey within is the personal spiritual,
intellectual, philosophical, and psychological shift of consciousness
people must make if they want to consciously evolve the human condition
and create a sustainable world.
The outcome of this hard work: A transformation in how we think, feel, and live. The prize for doing this work: A purposeful and interesting life and a deep self-respect-and a better world to leave behind for future generations to enjoy." Tom Heuerman
