Sometimes I feel the need to remember a time in my life when problems--though they seemed so much bigger--were so much more easily resolved and forgotten. Nothing helps me do that more than videos like this. Though I can't hide there forever (and nor should I want to), I do allow myself a few minutes' indulgence every now and again. There will come a time when the past and the future will loose all meaning. Fear, regret, and longing will have passed away. That is the future I long for, this is the past I want to hide in, but here is my present. If I ever forget that, I'm in trouble.
in the days of her affliction and wandering
all the precious things
that were hers from days of old."
