Recently, I saw a movie, "Nostalgia", which themes touch upon the subject of this thread. The movie has an impressive cast, (Bruce Dern, Ellen Burstyn, among others) and is very well written and acted.

Not an upbeat, feel-good movie for a Saturday night out, it has a lot of awful truth, that is difficult to avoid...thought provoking, sad, real.

I saw Nostalgia a few years back and enjoyed it and caught up with it again recently but didn’t enjoy it so much second time around.

I suppose that proves that Nostalgia ain’t what it used to be...

I thank you

The movie I'm referring to, came out just 2-3 months ago. Was it the same movie?

I asked Copperfield about arrangements for his collection after he passed. He gave a short vague non-answer and quickly changed the subject. I then asked one of his right -hand assistants the same question, and he said he didn't know what, if any, arrangements had been made.

I interpret those replies as "none of your business."

I can think of several very good reasons he would not want his plans to be public. I feel certain, though, that he has a well thought out plan.

We are hunters and gathers.
All this stuff is an extension of this drive and our brain's ability to catalog, edit, and expand.

It's ironic that we start and end with nothing. But in between there is much joy in the pursuit, acquisition, devouring, assimilation and eventual letting go.
