The birthday is always an especial day. though I know and you, who read my posts know too, that in almost every article I wrote, my brother Al accompanied me and his presence has been evident and always helpful. But the day of birth is worthy because we can be thankful for having our beloved ones into this world and by our side. I believe that it’ll ever be.
He is always in my every-day life and almost permanently with me in my posts. I can never take a step without him. But, his anniversary is for me a special day, and this time he’d be 68 years old. This number is an important number for us (the peoples from that period): a number for the beginning of an era: peace, freedom, and love. A movement that looking forward to such events like Woodstock with Jimi Hendrix, Joan Baez, Crosby/Still/ Nash and Young… The flowers generation.
And in this case, my lovely brother has an unaging birthday. Because this era is an endless time: love and peace forever. He will never get older, isn’t it fantastic?
Another point is that his birthday is after the day in which John Lennon has been shot dead. It’s for me a mixture of sadness and happiness and I must combine both. This is, as we might call, the game of fate.
Though, when I look through the past, there are a lot of similarities between Al and John. They were both in love with their mothers, had an unusual and unique way of life, and solitary. Therefore, I share this unique song by John again, not only because of that was one of Al’s beloved songs, but also because of its other title: Nothing Gonna Change my World. They both were convinced of this.
As you notice, I was often posting these latest days. Yes; there were many themes which have laid in my heart. Thank you for your commiseration. 🙏💖🙏
