There is an ancient Sufi parable about coffee: "He who tastes, knows; he who tastes not, knows not."
Youth is happy because it has the ability to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old."
Timeless AND ageless! I think I'll adopt this line of thinking. :-)p.s. are you considering buying a motorcycle? I see you've been memorializing your old Indian. ;-)
It was a red Indian, right?
I bought a Honda CX500 when I graduated from college, and used to commute 50 miles up/down the San Francisco peninsula to work. It turned out to be pretty impractical, even for sunny California. I ended up buying a Ford Pinto and leaving the motorcycle for weekends and the Santa Cruz mountains.And no, I never owned an Indian, although a friend of mine worked for a company that restored Indians. I just liked the song.... having heard it on the radio driving home the other day.But thanks for asking! :)
ps - the song was about a '52 Vincent "Black Lightning"... not nearly as renowned as the Indian, but a heck of a song, nonetheless.
...as in his last act, he "will's his freedom" (the Vincent) to Red Molly
...an old flame of mine.
