(Listen on youtube.com A Beautiful Dawn and Glorybound are my favorite)
But lately I've been thinkin'....
I wish I'd learned to play the bango. Or the drums.
I wish I'd gone to Nashville and tried to make it as a backup singer. (I'm not a good soloist/lead singer, but man, I can do a meaannn harmony).
I wish that I had planted my 17-year-old self on the roof of the Cruce Mansion and threatened to not come down until the El Dorado Springs City Council promised to raise funds to restore it instead of tearing it down. If I had pushed aside my fear that my parents would tan my hide for causing such a ruckus then maybe it would have started a revolution and it would still be standing for generations to enjoy.
I wish that I hadn't cared what my mother or mother-in-law thought and worn the red velvet wedding dress anyway!
I wish that I'd homeschooled my children and never let them get within an arms reach away from me. Now they're both grown and I wonder where the time has gone.
Oh don't worry about me. I'm fine. Really. If these are the only regrets I ever have in life I'll be lucky.
But maybe I should change my choice of music for a while. Something that makes me happy for all today offers.
Let me see...where is that Lady Gaga cd?
Until Next Time,
