What a drag it is getting old!

Posted: August 12, 2011 in Uncategorized

With my 50th high school reunion looming large in the windshield of life, lately  I have found myself dwelling on thoughts of aging.  Some good, some not so much, some “normal” whatever that is, most all of them real.  I love song lyrics! In a lot of ways they are my modern literature.  Not being an avid reader they provide a window to the minds of folks who’s writing skills provide entertainment as well as some insight into the human condition. In the same way readers pick and choose authors, I have my favorite singer/songwriters.  Over the years I have particularly enjoyed Bob Dylan, Lennon/McCartney, Jackson Browne, Joe Jackson, Lyle Lovett, Jimmy Buffet, Mark Knopfler, Lucinda Williams, Pete Townsend, Robert Earl Keen, Van Morrison, Randy Newman and the list could go on.  I close this entry with these haunting lines from “Running on Empty”

Looking out at the road rushing under my wheels
I don’t know how to tell you all just how crazy this life feels
I look around for the friends that I used to turn to to pull me through
Looking into their eyes I see them running too
