November’s theme is: Nostalgia

November is Nostalgia month here at Silversurfers.

All month long we’ll be posting new stories, Speakers Corner questions, polls and more that explore our fondness for the past and how it influences our present and future.

From debating how nostalgia colours our present opinions to looking back on popular trends from the 60s and 70s, we’re going to take a look at nostalgia from every direction.

We’ll be discussing the cultural and lifestyle differences between past and present and taking a fond look back at everything from childhood toys to home décor styles and fashion trends.

Feel free to share your own thoughts and experiences, and check back at the homepage all month to find more interesting topics to explore.

Are you looking forward to our new November theme? Share your ideas in the comments below!

Somebody said, 'nostalgia's cheap.'

Yes it is, and it's very good too. Why? Because we know how the story ends. Further, our memories hark back to a time when both we and the times were different.

I like nostalgia, it's an indulgence we may now afford ourselves, whilst still carrying the enormous responsibilities the years have placed upon us. We recall the years when we had no such responsibilities, others shouldered the burden. Oh, those were the days!

Yes, nostalgia does colour the way my wife and I live now; in part rejecting much of society's present values and cleaving to those instilled in us as kids, in a different time.

Crazy? Old fashioned? Yes, both of those and more. But ... we exist in a very secure, courteous and moral little world.

And that is so good!
