Everything that I have come in contact with has changed me. Every person that I've met, every song that I've sung. A few things have disproportionately affected me. President Kennedy's assassination. Grandma's prayers. Right up at the top of the list, along with the women I have loved, is the power of the Beatles.Yesterday I saw a clip of them doing She Loves You and I experienced an emotional re-run that changed me again.
Wisdom is fine and success is, I suppose, to be valued. Innocence, though, is joy. Those guys reeked of it.
