More or Less the Same

This version of "The Boxer" is beautiful and simple, and has a character of earned wisdom.

There is a verse that isn't in this version of the song. The verse contains some of my favorite lyrics I've ever heard.

"Now the years are rolling by me, they are rockin even me
I am older than I once was, and younger than Ill be, thats not unusual
No it isnt strange, after changes upon changes, we are more or less the same
After changes we are more or less the same"

In a melancholy mood, Paul Simon has always been able to reverberate in a beautiful way. It's like tea and the Times on a rainy Sunday.

If you feel inclined, what are your grey day joys?


  1. On my gray days, I immerse myself in worlds like that of The Elder Scrolls, or The Legend of Zelda. Everyone likes the hero. I like being the hero.

  2. On my gray days, I like watching The Ellen Show. She always put a smile on my face no matter what. =)

  3. Gray days are joys include walking in the rain, early morning breakfast at a Dinner, or having a fancy pastry at a cafe.
