As Long as We Are Young

In an effort to console me over the super 8 footage of our friends that I lost in Bucharest, a friend told me, "But we'll have our memories as long as we are young.  So don't be sad and keep on filming."  I suppose we will, Dom.  Oh, let's never grow old--how sad of a thing life would be to forget.

"C'était Quand-Même Une Belle Epoque"

As Rod says:
"We had joy,

Here Hear

"Q. - What would be the test of corruption?
A. - Becoming really insincere--calling myself "not such a bad fellow," thinking I regretted my lost youth when I only envy the delights of losing it.  Youth is like having a big plate of candy.  Sentimentalists think they want to be in the pure, simple state they were in before they ate the candy.  They don't.  They just want the fun of eating it all over again.  The matron doesn't want to repeat her girlhood--she wants to repeat her honeymoon.  I don't want to repeat my innocence, I want the pleasure of losing it again."

No la olvide 
Serás felíz.
Life is beautiful
Do not forget it
You will be happy.

Life is good in Girona.  Here's proof:
