Weekly Photo Challenge … Nostalgia

July 9, 2013

I read this week’s photo challenge as neuralgia and thought I know this, having just recovered from 24 hours of pain.  Though difficult to capture on film I could wax lyrical; then I remembered my word limit and your height of interest … and of course reread the prompt.

Then thinking again for a moment or two because that is all it takes to say ‘I don’t do nostalgia’ Like 10 CC didn’t admit to ‘love’ I really don’t hanker after the good old days.  My childhood, honestly was dim and distant. I don’t get in a song and dance about my not so wonderful school days or even the swingin’ sixties;  I have done all that and got the tshirt; I am sure!

I work in an environment where we care for relics of the past centuries.  Readers come and research their long gone relatives who might have worked in Huntley and Palmers’  Biscuit factory, Sutton Seeds, Courage’s Brewery or indeed any other rural establishment that flourished in England in the last millennium   Then we have the academics who delight over the words of wisdom written in the golden age of literature, art, music, publishing and publishers.  I fetch and  carry tomes, ledgers and archives to be browsed, perused and gasped over … looking at my watch at regular intervals until 5pm when I can go home drag on my Levis and listen to Bob Dylan singing Highway 61 revisited.

No I don’t do nostalgia much!
