Every now and then, some random story moves me as this did today. My cousin posted this YouTube video as a tribute to Billy Hilfiger. After watching the video, I wished I had known him. The Hilfigers, yes all related to Tommy, are a large clan. I’ve known a few of them. Technically they lived down the street from me growing up, about 3 miles away, in Elmira NY, 1970s.
What I like about the video is that with one lovely song and many good pictures, I feel I’ve learned something about a life, though probably unconventional and short, that was very well lived. A picture, and a song paint a thousand words. Rock on Mr. Billy Hilfiger, Rock on.
