Never Too Late
“Do you play, son?”
The question startled Joseph out of his reverie. He had been watching the older gentleman at the table across from him strum on a guitar, unconsciously fingering along.
He gave the man a half smile. “Not for a while now.”
A hurried marriage. A baby too soon. Too many bills. A time consuming, dead end job. “Not enough time,” Joseph said with the same smile.
“Nunca es tarde para aprender.”
The old man held out the guitar. “It’s never too late to learn. Or in your case, relearn. Live while you can.”
