Why does a brass band make me nostalgic .The film Brassed Off has an even worse / better effect . Nostalgia plus tears.
Maybe a longing for full employment and childhood . We were warned we would not get jobs ( baby boom) but we did! We did not crave for the impossible . We supported each other , if possible. . Every Christmas and New Year were special with tales of only Apples and Oranges and working for the family at a young age
.Maybe our children and grandchildren will feel the same about everything but in a different way,
Strange times we live in right now . The Fear clause has been activated .Please don’t let it all spoil this time of year . Whatever we do !
