    Well.. this could go to basicly every direction, but what do you miss from the past?

    When I was 11, I had a aquarium for 3 years. Then I decided to get rid of it. Didn't had time anymore to maintain it, but I somehow still want to start again with it.

    Is there something you miss and possible wanna start with it again?

    I miss the days when there wasn't a militant person looking avidly for an excuse to be personally and mortally offended at every little thing that happens in society.

    Mostly the peace and quiet that was once available.

    I can recall going out on the super highways locally at night and run my bike up to top speed. Without seeing another human.

    In general it seems there's too many people.

    I'd say I miss good television (with the exception of a small handful of shows, the stuff on today is awful) but I find myself making much better use out of the time.

    Mostly, I just miss the days of running a mile in 7:00 flat, and wanting more. One day I'll get back to that point though.

    When I was a wee bairn, I spent the summers in Hakodate, Japan, with my mother's parents. I remember the smell of anti-mosquito incense burned in a pig-shaped burner, and Oji-kun (my grandfather) telling me Japanese faerie tales at night. He died when I was eleven, and I never went back after that.

    I would give anything to go back there for just one night, and listen to Oji-kun and his cronies playing cards in the other room and laughing.
