‘Gone, Gone Again – The Nostalgia Issue’
Release date: 13th April 2021
Nostalgia— for some, it’s a peaceful, palpable ‘trip down memory lane’, for others it warns a state of acute yearning for the irrecoverable. For one person it’s pallid homesickness, for another it’s a wistful, barely-there feeling of sentimentality. Nostalgia can be directed at and prompted by a variety of things; from tangible objects and familiar phrases, to physical places and particular people, both past and present. More abstractly, the notion of nostalgia is inextricably linked to the passing of time and the five senses. It can be considered both as something to be overcome or to be embraced; or, often, both.
