Parsley, sage, rosemary and time

The daddy blogger in me can’t seem to get off the subject of time this week. My daughter is like a mirror and a time machine and a psychiatrist all in one little package. She shows me what I was like as a baby, reminds me how old I am and provides me with thoughts of reflection and self-analysis all day every day.

When I am not busy analyzing myself, I think about how much the world has changed since I was her age. Did you know that Pearl Jam and Nirvana will seem older to her than Simon & Garfunkel and Led Zeppelin seemed to me? Pearl Jam and Nirvana! These bands still seem fairly new to me until I recall that Pearl Jam is currently celebrating their 20th anniversary.

Pearl Jam Ten

19 years before Annie
Led Zeppelin I

Only 5 years before me!
Simon & Garfunkel, Parsley, Sage, Rosemary & Thyme

Only 7 years before me!

Intriguing time chart relating mine and my daughter’s age:



Al Jolson = Elvis
Joseph Smith & his Orchestra = Buddy Holly
Duke Ellington = Beatles
Paul Whiteman = Bob Dylan
Bing Crosby = Pink Floyd
Benny Goodman = Elton John
Elvis = Pearl Jam
Buddy Holly = Nirvana
Beatles = Minus The Bear
Bob Dylan = Kelly Clarkson
Pink Floyd = John Legend
Elton John = Lady Gaga

*NOTE: Musical examples are meant to show time relation only – this is NOT a comparison of historical significance!

About Aaron

Born and raised in Tacoma, Washington, I graduated with a BA in Business from the University of Washington in Seattle. After working in Seattle for a few years I moved to Alta, UT to work and ski. After getting that out of my system (finally) I settled back in Tacoma. I am now a self-employed photographer and web designer, while maintaining my post as stay-at-home, work-at-home dad to the greatest little girl in all the world.
