(May You Stay) Forever Young

What is it about evening time and ceaseless rain and Bob Dylan that makes me think about unfashionable things like the relentlessness of time, growing old and Peter Pan?

Smiling to myself, with Uncle Bob's warm nasal twang in my head at the bus-stop has never done much to help the handful of people who are inclined to believe that I'm a (somewhat) sane person.

Nor has clapping and shouting out "I do believe in fairies, I do, I do!" while jumping on a particularly bouncy mattress.

Yes, it has been that kind of a day.

Perhaps, a big cup of chocolate milk will soothe these frazzled nerves. Now if only it wasnt such a windy, rainy evening.

Rain has different weird, effect on us doesn't it? Sometimes, it'll just freshen us up, and sometimes it'll make us restless, with the murky, dark atmosphere it creates...:)

soin, thanks! I liked this version but I prefer Dylan and Baez's version better..

Srishti, I totally agree! I have no idea how the British ever get any work done with that eternally overcast sky. :D

Joan Baez has done such justice to that song. :)
And Dylan, ah, what can I say about him that isn't 'blowing in the wind' already? :)

The Alphaville "Forever Young" is awesome too, btw. :)
