Such a fascinating and well-researched article! Thank you for sharing your wealth of knowledge and personal experience with Age of Empathy, Kimberly. I love the feeling of nostalgia, as I suspect many writers do, yet I can easily get lost in it. There's definitely a fine balance. And, now I need to research Christopher Robin's reference to time slips.
I believe I first read about the Swiss soldiers and the beginning of nostalgia in another AoE article that was published several months ago (I think). Pretty cool! :D
