Howard Levy just turned 60, so I guess it'd have to be 61...
Having just turned 60 myself, I've thought about this long and hard, and it
occurs to me that, well remember how they used to say "If you can remember
the 60's you weren't there"?
I think that's changed to If you can remember the 60's you weren't there
AND you're no longer a young turk. You're just a turk.
The first thing you notice when you turn 60 is that 60 is the new 60. This
does not exempt you from being a young turk at 60. The other thing I just
wrote exempts you.
But I just thought of something. 30 years ago when MTV exploded onto the
scene my wife observed, "Remember when they told us that in the future we'd
WATCH our music? I guess it's the future."
Well, the future came and went and from what I can tell we're back to
whatever came before the future, back to a time when anyone can be a young
I figure that as long as I can be younger the Jon Gindick I'm a young turk,
as he is a young turk, and he has been older than me for a long time
now. (That was my harp content.)
PS - Never forget, If you live for yesterday, then today is the next day of
the rest of your life.
