I used to dwell quite heavily on the past, particularly where this band was concerned. When something you’ve been doing for seven years (2001-2008) of your life comes to an end, it’s likely to have a profound effect - it certainly did on me. This is something I don’t mind admitting now a good few years down the line, but I think it took me about a year to come to terms with.
Dwelling on things for a time is important, I think. Some people perhaps don’t need this time, but for others, it helps us look back over what we’ve done, and the sadness and sorrow for a loss are entirely natural human emotions - ones that should not be suppressed. I think if one lets this take place, then it will naturally run its course and we can begin to look to the future with positivity again, instead of thinking about the past. This is precisely what happened to me. All that longing and painful nostalgia is in the past now, so I am able to look back on this and regard it as a really happy time in my life. Any nostalgia felt these days is always a pleasant experience.
Enjoy the vid. Sometimes I can’t quite believe I used to do this on a regular basis!
I’m going to try and write some slightly less self indulgent bits and bobs as the month goes on…
