"the remains of our culture" and an exercise in exploring the concept

Throwaway culture: we waste; we find excitement in the new, we forget about the old UNTIL it is "vintage" or "nostalgic"--and once more hip to care about.

In search of the remnants of our culture I find myself distracted by the same issues as everyone else but, because I like to be difficult, I tack on a slight of rebellious self-separation and realize that there aren't too terribly many lost facets of our culture I tend to concern myself with. I am a selfish being, I am self-involved and I am lonely, and for this I find that I enjoy remnants of past versions of myself much more than things left behind as hints of others.
