The Digital Thing


Zounds…

The digital world.

This picture probably makes it look worse than it is. Like just about everything, there are two sides to every coin. I was going to talk about that. Instead I’m just going to talk about the good side.

Imagine a world where you can think of a song, search for it, and play it. Imagine too, a world where you can look up the lyrics and share them. And, that all of that takes about 10 seconds.

That world’s here.

And, so is my neighbor’s brand new baby daughter. Imagine that. A brand new person. Less than 30 hours old. That’s something. As I get older the miracle of birth amazes me more and more.

And, with that, I give you Bob Dylan’s “Forever Young.” He wrote it in 1973, upon the birth of his son. Jakob… who is a well-regarded musician in his own right. And, who is 44 years old. Imagine that. It seems lately that I’ve been thinking about the passing of time. Time used well. Time wasted. And, the differences.

Anyway. Here we go. For my neighbors’ brand new daughter.

“May God bless and keep you always. May your wishes all come true. May you always do for others. And let others do for you. May you build a ladder to the stars. And climb on every rung.

May you stay forever young. Forever young, forever young. May you stay forever young.

May you grow up to be righteous. May you grow up to be true. May you always know the truth. And see the lights surrounding you. May you always be courageous. Stand upright and be strong.

May you stay forever young. Forever young, forever young. May you stay forever young.

May your hands always be busy. May your feet always be swift. May you have a strong foundation. When the winds of changes shift. May your heart always be joyful. May your song always be sung.

May you stay forever young. Forever young, forever young. May you stay forever young.”

Welcome to the world.
