I might add to this, Adam, that nostalgia for any decade is a criminal waste of energy. I might miss aspects of my thirties, then I blast Atomic Blonde, which takes me right back to that music, which I can enjoy any time. I most assuredly don’t miss the eating disorders. It’s not easy to pine for what we don’t have- as in youth-but we all end up at the same destination, if we’re fortunate: old. And really fortunate, old and happy.
