“Teddy told me that in Greek, nostalgia literally means the pain from an old wound. It’s a twinge in your heart, far more powerful than memory alone. This device isn’t a space ship, it’s a time machine. It goes backwards, forwards. It takes us to a place where we ache to go again. It’s not called a wheel, it’s called a carousel. It lets us travel the way a child travels. Round and a round, and back home again. To a place where we know we are loved.”

I think this will just be a Mad Men appreciation post. I’ve almost finished the first season, and I can safely say I already love the show an awful lot.

Credit goes to James Minchin III for Rolling Stone for the following photos, and the lyrics are from “The Wind” by Cat Stevens – for some reason, it invokes a kind of nostalgia within me.

I listen to the wind
to the wind of my soul
Where I’ll end up well I think,
only God really knows

I’ve sat upon the setting sun 
But never, never never never 
I never wanted water once 
No, never, never, never

I listen to my words but 
they fall far below 
I let my music take me where 
my heart wants to go 

I swam upon the devil’s lake 
But never, never never never 
I’ll never make the same mistake 
No, never, never, never
