Two thoughts on this . . .


Great observations, Ted! And one more thought, articulated in a novel by Thomas Wolfe, published in 1940. The title is "You Can't Go Home Again." The meaning of the title is that we can't go back to where we grew up (or where we had "a life") and expect it to be the same, because things change in many ways. People we knew then have moved on, they have grown/changed/evolved, the things that made up the life of that place and of those people are different, often VERY different. So we can go back to the same physical place, but we can't go back to the life we remembered. And it's not that our memory is faulty, but rather that the world has moved on.
