It was inevitable….this recent passion for nostalgia has generated a counter-passion….various authors & columnists are suggesting that nostalgia blogging on Facebook is romanticized escape.
Well, yeah! There is so much from which to escape in today’s brutish world.
BUT here’s the counter to the cynics’ counter-argument…used right, nostalgia can be downright efficacious…not simply purposeless escape into the recent past, but a powerful reminder of what was best about those days … imperfect tho they were, those were when friends, family. community, and country were still valued without embarrassment
