It's all about yearning
It makes me wonder whether every generation looks back on its youth in disbelief...Or, whether there really is a kind of demographic exceptionalism.
Terrific ! Thx
Brilliant.. and sadly true
Beautiful post, Susie. I think you are onto something.
This is so good! One of your best!
We are so many kindred souls wandering in the late afternoon dusk.
Susie, your considerable prowess with our evocative and gorgeous language means it’s almost scary to comment. Those years in which we grew up do seem different than those my children are experiencing. There was the normal human quotient of evil, apathy and complacency, but it was offset by a flowering of hope and the presence of formidable positive change. That stays in my aging bones. Not nostalgia but the memory of what we can accomplish through a shared vision.
Harmless like Dumbledore, maybe.
Those who can write as well as you do, can influence.
