Excellent! Definitely one of the greatest musicals of all time!
Not in theme with the thread but gives a small sense of nostalgia.
Music is the closest means we have to time travel... One piece of melody can get you reminiscing your past or dreaming up your future.
Music is one way. Our sense of smell is another. There are occasions when I've been transported to another time and place simply by smelling something long-forgotten.
Thoughts, ideas, key words.
While things are changing continually, there are things that never change.
People are discussing stuff, how everything was better in the "good old times", people are complaining about this and that, people either fear an apocalyptic scenario or hope that everything will be wonderful soon, and I can't help but think: didn't we have that already? More than once?
And poof! I'm in another century. In another millennium. In split seconds.
Or I travel to the future and wonder: how will the time period we're currently in be referred to in 50, 100, 200, 500, 2000, 5000 years? People tend to believe that they are living in a special time, it was the same in the past and will be the same in the future, most likely.
Very good question.
To return a bit into the direction of the original topic...
I am aware, that "pictures" meant early photographs, but a painting is also a picture, and one of my all-time-favorite old pictures (literally) is that one:
I wonder if that was a whole tribe making those handprints, or just a couple of artists doing their own many times over.
A masterpiece! Love those handprints.
