Nostalgia

Nostalgia is a sentimentality for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations (source: Wikipedia)

I'm quite prone to nostalgia, but not as much as I used to be. I acknowledge that it has provided me comfort in times of distress, but also hindered me in embracing the here and now, and be present in the moment.

In this section I'm giving in to my nostalgic side, and share some of my favourite music, films, even computer games. I appreciate these art forms because they have a dream-like quality and allow me to transcend the confinement of day-to-day numbness, and experience coherence, depth and wholeness.

There are a few simple rules though
