When is it "too much" nostalgia?

Nostalgia’s been widely regarded as a good thing, but when does it go too far? When does it become unhealthy for us to stick ourselves to the same ideas, the same properties, solely because we associate good things with them and they make us feel safe? It is necessary for us to be challenged, but how can we do that if we’re constantly being given the same thing because that’s what we like and what we’re used to? With all these reboots, when is enough enough?

As someone who’s picking up writing after slipping far far out of the habit, this article was helpful in bringing back some of that inspiration. I’m always open to seeing other people’s methods for keeping things in order, this does not disappoint

Great article! Brings up some things to think about. I’ve been revisiting this film through a lot of articles, and so far I’ve noticed many things I hadn’t in my initial viewing. This is one of the great examples that shows the parallels between today’s generation and the ‘hippie children’ of the 60s.
