She's doing better, thanks.

I also have that nostalgia for what I haven't experienced myself, a topic I want to muse on as well. In particular, I have an intense nostalgia for the few years prior to my birth, 1965-1967. A lot of that has to do with the way the Sixties are narrated. But I think it also might have to do with the way I used to watch slide shows of my parents' trips prior to my arrival on the scene.

I can understand that. And I had the 60s narrative-based nostalgia, too--most severe around the time I hit high school, I think. But my love for some of the music and shows that I love isn't entirely reducible to that, so yes, more musing is needed.
