Nature boy

In Winnipeg right now and as I wander through my life of long ago, lyrics from an old Nat King Cole song spin around in my head.

There was a boy
A very strange enchanted boy.
They say he wandered very far, very far
Over land and sea.

A little shy
And sad of eye
But very wise was he.

And then one day
A magic day he came my way
And while we spoke of many things, fools and kings,
This he said to me:

The greatest thing
You’ll ever learn
Is just to love

And be loved in return.

Like the song says, he was a very wise boy, a country boy, a nature boy.

And he turned a sparkling 82 years on Christmas Eve.

Happy Birthday, Dad!

You’ve been a great teacher!
