Maybe I’m just overly emotional today, but this video… it kind of haunts me.
A reporter from the Tennessean tweeted a video of 12-year-old viral sensation Mason Ramsey aka The Yodeling Walmart Boy at his sold out concert in Nashville, calmly boarding his trusty inflatable steed and setting sail over the crowd.
It’s not a sight you see every day, and there’s something so serene, so mesmerizing about it, it might just bring you to tears, too. It feels like a metaphor for our times. Or the coming of the hero we need. Or everything magical still left in the world. I don’t know, I don’y know. He’s sailing into the future with grace and confidence, and it leaves me wondering: Mason Ramsey 2020? Maybe Buttigieg/Ramsay? Just a thought. (We can certainly do away with those pesky age restrictions if this idea takes off)
