forver young

Sometimes a song, or an album, becomes so inexplicably linked to a time and place that its impossible to hear the song and not be taken back... or to think about that time and not hear the song.

This song has been in my head for days. Yesterday, my grandfather passed away at age 82, at home, after a heart attack. We had just visited two weeks ago, and he seemed in about the same shape he's always been in. I think at some point in the visit, I remember thinking, "Its hard to think that in five or ten or twenty years time, he'll be gone."

May you stay forever young.
