“Slow down, you move too fast…”

Yesterday I was walking to the parking garage after work and noticed I was walking fast for no reason.  This wasn’t the first time; I think I’ve been in a hurry since birth. I slowed down, and the Simon and Garfunkel song Feelin’ Groovy popped into my head, “…Just kicking down the cobblestones. Looking for fun and feelin’ groovy” (Simon and Garfunkel). This song makes me smile.

So does You Can Call Me Al, also by Paul Simon. “If you’ll be my bodyguard, I will be your long lost pal….” See the video below. You may smile too.

    • It’s one of my favorites. My dad’s name is Al, and this fits him. Thanks for helping me with my technical difficulties. I’m working on that now. (Enjoy the earworm.)
