Nostalgia, n. from Greek, nostos ‘return home’ algos ‘pain’: A wistful or excessively sentimental yearning for return to some past period or irrecoverable condition.
The past is a construct of the mind and yet we pull from this place an idea of who we are. I will not tell you who i was, I will tell you who I am...now. The deer represents a life destroyed by empty nostalgia. Nothing is harvested, all is waste.
