Humourous conversation with the youngest born about musical influence:
Me: Shania Twain was like the female Garth Brooks in the country music industry.
Boy #3: Who’s Shania Twain?
Me: Blank stare
Boy #3: And who’s Garth Brooks?
Me: You know, “Friends in Low Places”, “The River”…
Boy #3: I’ve never heard any of that.
Boy #2: Laughs hysterically
Me: (stunned silence) I don’t think I can explain this to you, other than they were once really big stars…
…That no one seems to talk about anymore.
Relevance is important. It doesn’t matter what you do. Important things will be made relevant and timeless.
