stephanie posted the nico version of this tune earlier. it reminded me i have been wanting to share this with you. it would be in my top 5 favorite songs list i am sure. the number of times i have listened to it...incalculable. i'm a sucker for this sort of expression of genuine human experience.
and i love his grey beard in this video. because getting older is something i ruminate on a lot. i have noticed in the last several years, since making the transition from my 30s to my 40s, that seeing people i admire as they age is important for me as i try to embrace it and do it with grace. there is a fullness and richness to getting older. there are things you gain only with years.
and the last line, "don't confront me with my failures, i had not forgotten them."
