Just some thoughts:
TIMELESS AND AGELESS
Don’t you just love it? Love what you ask. Don’t you just love it when something is timeless and ageless.
I was early for a basketball game. Nothing new. I had a book with me which I often do. Once heard it said “if you have a book with you you always have a friend.” I kinda subscribe to that way of thinking. Anyway I’m early for the game and as I often do on a small college campus I will go to their grill, eating or cafeteria area. On this day I got a cup of coffee sat down open my book begin to read when I hear music. Not loud or over bearing. Now I listen more closely. Oh yeah, the song and the voice.
The music is coming from a couple sitting at a table not far from me. They have this song on their phone or electronic something. That stuff is so ahead of me. I stop my reading and just sit and listen. Now they notice I’m listening. Young couple probably 18-19 yr old. They are having hot chocolate and I can tell they are listening to the song.
I can’t help myself, so I say to them, “You like that song?” They reply, “oh yes.” And then to my surprise the girl says, “That’s Nat King Cole and the Christmas Song.” I smile and say, “Young lady you know who that is?” “Well we know that song and yes we know Nat King Cole. It’s a classic song.”
When the song finishes I said to the young couple, “Hey you made my day, two young people knowing an old Christmas song and even more so you knew who Nat King Cole was.” The young lady says, “Oh, hey some things are timeless and ageless.” Oh what that line did for a guy my age.
“Timeless and Ageless.”
Wow…. that they are…that they are. It’s good every so often to hear that in life there are some things that are just that……….timeless and ageless.
