Six Degrees of Blogs

Cat Stevens Yusuf Islam Andersson?


He did have a Swedish mother. And spent some time being idolized in the booming metropolis of Gavle.

But that's beside the point.

What's not, is the circular notion to all things.

A profound passion for the lyrical Harold & Maude drove an Element down Foothill, "Where Do The Children Play?" blasting from unsophisticated speakers, crackling, as the hand of a ONE-braceleted arm turned the volume knob east. A few whimsically-inspired digits later, there it was:

"It's not time to make a change,
Just relax,
take it easy.
You're still young, that's your fault,
There's so much you
have to know.

Find a girl, settle down,
If you want you can marry.
Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy.

I was once like you are
now, and I know that it's not easy,
To be calm when you've found something
going on.
But take your time, think a lot,
Why, think of everything
you've got.
For you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not. "

-- (Father and Son)

The '70s clearly ruled.

Will someone ever say that about the '00s?
