Nostalgia is about remembering "the good old days" and good old ways. I can remember my grandmother giving me silver dollars as birthday presents. But those days are past and gone. Anyway you don’t need me to read a photograph for you. You have plenty of ideas of your own.

    so funny, on one hand; so effective, on the other: visualizing our own mortality fills us with nostalgia for the potent life we haven't lived yet -- so we hurry/ decide to Live : )

    Here lie the bones of Charles Rushton,

    his portriats are what laid him down.

    Took a nice photo of a thoudsand-pound man,

    who tripped on his tripod and crushed him.
