Living in the Past?
There's an old saying a young man has no past, so he drives fast cars to catch his future - and an old man has no future, so he sits in his rocking chair trying to hold on to his past. This has some truth to it. There comes a time when we get past the stage of reliving our past in actuality, and only relive it in memoirs. We either lack the energy, the money, or the interest to actually do it all over again. So we sit back and remember the good times. It's amazing how the mind erases the bad ones.
