Here There and Everywhere

Expat wanderer

Hey Ayatollah! Leave Those Kids Alone!

Every now and then I make a new friend. I can see in their eyes – life! love! willingness to engage and take risks! people who don’t necessarily see things the way the majority does.

One of these friends, my Kuwaiti friend, is a treasure. She has the most amazing mind, and sends me the most amazing things.

You might look at me and think I am too old for Pink Floyd, but you would be wrong. Pink Floyd makes my blood run faster. They did when I was younger, they did when my own son discovered Pink Floyd, and then, watching this video my friend sent – WOW. There goes the adrenelin!

OK, YouTube won’t let me insert it in this post. Go to the original post, play the video. . . very creative, very moving:

Don’t you love young people? They love justice, and they hate injustice. They hate unnecessary constrictions. They hate people telling them how to think. All that energy, all that passion, all that vision!

Most of my friends – like AdventureMan, like my Kuwaiti friend – are still 25 on the inside. πŸ™‚

Most of my friends will get this video – and love it! πŸ™‚

  1. Hi intlxpatr, thank you so much. Do you also like David Bowie?
    Let’s all hope that there is no further bloodshed on Thursday, 22 Bahman.

  2. LOL, and I still like the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. I like the words in Rush songs, but their singing gives me a headache. All things old are new again . . .

  3. Thank you very much for your article, you are right when I hear this song ( Pink Floyd ), I remember the 70’s . I wish one day will get together and listen to them.
