The best of everything: Guyana 1945-1985 – Nostalgia 16 – By Godfrey Chin

Godfrey Chin -“Nostalgias”

January 28. 2007 – Stabroek News – Nostalgia 16 – By Godfrey Chin

In F Scott Fitzgerald’s novel, The Great Gatsby, one of the pastimes of the indulgent rich was prolonged conversation on “The Best of Everything and Anything.” Of course this was possible because in the thirties there was no television – the nemesis of banter and conversation between family and friends.

In subsequent years, the Best of Everything was extended by newspapers and magazines to annual polls on Jazz, restaurants, the worst dressed, the rich and famous, MVPs and today’s popular Sports Illustrated swimsuit issues.

In recording my Nostalgias I have always cherished the idea of sharing my best – titillating your palette to simultaneously evoke your best for comparison, especially since we may have been in the same church – different pews, different times – but all on the same heady, wonderful journey of life in ‘O Beautiful Guyana’ of yesteryear.
