We are nothing if not creatures of habit. This is how we become stuck in a rut, running and humming as we do around the same variables. Which is why we require context.
Context: The part of a written or spoken statement that surrounds a word or passage and that often specifies meaning. OR The circumstances in which a particular event occurs: SITUATION.
Because those who suffer from this disease they call nostalgia want nothing more than to be surrounded, to muffle the daily grind in order to soothe and give one meaning. And meaning is fluid, a mixture of content that changes like shaken cans of paint decaying in the backseat of a forgotten ’49 Hudson.
So the question becomes: Can you change your vehicle?
