Lynn Hummel: Is nostalgia only for sentimental fools?

Email

I touched base with Garrison, N.D., my home town, just briefly one day last week, and felt a touch of nostalgia as I drove around with my brother and nephew.

Nostalgia was once considered a mental illness associated with anxiety, insomnia, irregular heartbeat and disordered eating. I don’t think that is what was going on inside me. Many consider nostalgia as a sentimental longing to return to the happiness and pleasure of the “good old days.” That wasn’t my feeling either.
