Wouldn’t that be a better song title? Well, perhaps not. But I digress…
It’s easy to look at things in the context of them being ever-changing objects. people start to show signs of aging, blankets start to fray with use, milk cartons grow larger with advanced civilizations of mold taking hold of the territory.
But there are also many things that don’t change: wearing high waisted slacks has always looked weird and always will, malts always have been and always will be better than milkshakes, and being kind to others is the best way to go through life.
I’ve referenced it before, but one of my favorite quotes is by the famous author and philosopher Aldous Huxley: “it’s a little embarrassing that after 45 years of research & study, the best advice I can give people is to be a little kinder to each other.”
It was true when he said it and it’s true now. As far as kindness goes; the times they aren’t a-changin’.
