Family Nostalgia

Family Nostalgia

A Poem by A. Musing
"

A moment of nostalgia for me, when I heard my dad say an old childhood joke unconsciously from the cartoon Land Before Time, reminding me of moments and memories as family treasures.

"
Family is hearing old inside jokes and habits from your childhood, repeated unconciously in your adult years and eventually, as bittersweet nostalgia as members gradually replace the roles of older generations, before finally resting in peace in the memory of those who know not their sentimental value.

Author's Note

A. Musing
My parents used to rent out the Land Before Time videotapes, and we watched all the sequels repeatedly. A character, Ducky, would say "yup, yup, yup!", and my dad recently said it to himself when he was thinking out loud one day. It reminded me those days (I'm 35 now with 2 kids) and made me wonder who would carry on old family jokes like these, or would it die with us.

i noticed your review on a poem of Cassie's and was hooked by your hippie looking avatar ;)) so came to read a bit ... read you About Me and must say it gives me a fine bit of chuckle .. :)
your write is like a journal entry musing .. i think it contains a lot of content that is worth pursuing .. in some quarters tradition it ridiculed and purposefully obliterated .. on many levels .. as long as generations repeat the songs, stories, jokes and musings that are family heritage .. they will continue me thinks ... your "Family Nostalgia" makes me think of the appointed story tellers in certain cultures ... they are fading there is no doubt ... as written history has replaced it .. :(

My nephew used to watch The Land Before Time vidoes over and over when he was little.

We all make our own traditions and pass them on to the next generation. Some fade away while others continue to the next generation.

It is so nice to have such fond family memories. Unfortunately, many do not, until I had a family of my own I had very few to recollect.

Take care - Dave

I like writing. I like smoking. I like writing while I'm smoking. Then I read what I've written the next day, as if someone else had written it. It's better than therapy. more..
