I Run and I Run to Catch Up to the Sun but It's Sinking
When I was a senior in High School I started every single morning by setting the needle down on my Dark Side of the Moon record at just the right spot to play Pink Floyd's "Time". For you young folks, a record is made of black vinyl and you need a turntable to play one. You couldn't pick which song you wanted to hear but you could learn where the song you wanted was positioned in the grooves and set the needle down in that spot. We still have a turntable at our house. Our grown-up kids and their friends think that is really cool - LOL! My granddaughter made me listen to Justin Beeber on the computer so made her listen to The Monkees. I am getting WAY off topic here....
So every morning I listened to that song. It probably had something to do with me leaving home for the big city as soon as I turned 18. I have spent my entire life running to catch up to the sun. I would like to think I could slow down when I retire and "smell the roses" but I have a feeling it is too late and I am hard-wired to rush. Until I spontaneously explode into a cloud of junk and glitter. Not a bad way to go.
Oh, this is the latest page in the altered book. Forgot to say that.
