I have never thought chronological age mattered much. There is a hierarchy of souls, some are very, very ancient, inexplicably evolved and knowing from the moment they land on this planet. You can see it in their eyes. Somehow, they must struggle through their early years, those years when the weight of their wisdom and depth of feeling are out of balance with practical life experience, until they eventually find a place, a voice, and recognition – by individuals or the world. Jake Bugg, who I just discovered (and once again, I suppose I am behind) must be a very old soul indeed. His voice is rich with experience and emotion.
I have been listening to him on Youtube and chosen this video of his song, “Someone Told Me” as today’s song of the day. He’s 19. Amazing.
