Topic for December: Nostalgia

 

“The global pandemic has spawned a different type of epidemic, one of an entirely different nature: a nostalgia outbreak. Longing for 'simpler times' and 'better days', many of us have been turning to 90s dance playlists, TV sitcoms, and sports highlights. We're looking for comfort and safety in the permanence of the past, or at least, what we think the past was. But, when it first appeared, nostalgia itself wasn't considered a feeling; it was a deadly disease...we wrestle with its eternal paradox to both hold us back and keep us going.” – from NPR’s Throughline Podcast

 

Ice breaker: Name one smell that takes you back in time.

  • How do you define nostalgia?  What feelings do you experience when you are nostalgic?
  • What kinds of things are you nostalgic for? Music, TV shows, sports highlights, holidays, dance.
  • Does nostalgia hold us back or keep us going? What purpose does nostalgia serve in our lives?


ALL ARE WELCOME!
