One can reminisce too much.

Perhaps ... but if we want to understand our present, we must look at our past. I wasn't quick enough to thank you for your earlier post...

From the preface to Lu Xun's Na Han

When I was young I, too, had many dreams. Most of them I later forgot, but I see nothing in this to regret. For although recalling the past may bring happiness, at times it cannot but bring loneliness, and what is the point of clinging in spirit to lonely bygone days? However, my trouble is that I cannot forget completely, and these stories stem from those things which I have been unable to forget.

Thanks, Jackie. My work place held its annual Chinese New Year Banquet Friday. Over 430 people attended, many of whom I have known for a long time. Got caught up reminincing with different folks, some of whom I have watched grow up and some who watched me grow up. I was awashed with dreams and thoughts of the past that night...

Lori, that's an insightful piece.

In 1971, this young lad joined Mattson's academy. He thought he knew what he was looking for...

I just saw that young man last Saturday at the Hut. He was kicking me rapidly and repeatedly.

Thank you for sharing your past. Steve
