People don’t whistle anymore. When I was growing up people, especially older men whistled as they walked down the street and worked and stuff. I can’t remember when the last time I heard someone whistle was. It must be decades though. Seriously….decades.
The most scary and difficult things in your life came totally unexpectedly. There was probably no way to prepare for them because they were things that probably never crossed your mind would happen.
At which age is a good time for children to learn the lesson that things and people aren’t always what they seem?
I mean kids can be some really, right to the gut, brutally honest people; kind of like little drunks. I’d be more worried for him I think. Lol
The very, very few times I thought about how marriage would be as a teen and young adult I envisioned something like the song Summer Breeze and I really feel that whole song is just a huge lie.
At no point in time does married/family life feel like a summer breeze, not even on vacation and even childless yuppies don’t live like this. There are fleeting moments I suppose, but not overall and I really wanted and hoped for something like that.
Two people can create any relationship they want though I suppose; can’t they? Is it a matter of cost, attitude, devotion or all of the above? Lol Like I’d know.
Is this satire? Are the Talking Heads making fun of humanity with the song People Like Us?
Michael Franti may be this generations Clearance Clearwater Revival. Not that I’ve been to a concert but I imagine there are kids and people of all ages and races enjoying it together.
I like this song: I gotta love me too – Mathew O’Malley.
But this song “for what it’s worth” by Buffalo Springfield is the song we all need to listen to right now. It’s definitely the song of our time, at least in the US right now. Which is sad because wasn’t it a song made about all the chaos of the 60’s? Yet here we stand once again trying to make sense of all this anger and upheaval.
If we all just tried, in whatever capacity we could, to make this world a better place it would be such a different world. Wouldn’t it?
