"I've lost all the time I have in this world, I spend it unwisely, unwisely I see. I can't get it back,and I can't move forward, I'm broken and empty its over for me ... If I could undo all the wrongs that I've caused... fall to my knees and pray for swiftness and just...
but I'm just a fool, a fool driven to dust and the world ain't going to change for me."
Second chances are rare in this world. But I have been blessed with one. I have made a great many mistakes in my life. And while I don't think that I have hurt anyone but myself for the most... I still am grateful for the second chance to begin my life over. So far, so good. But like the song says, I can't promise to be strong.
Not that I am likely not to repeat some of my mistakes. Well, I may. I will try not to, but you know... things happen. I admit to my frailty as a human being. My follies in life are somewhat legendary. But be that as it may... I am at least trying to be a better person. Isn't that what matters? I hope so.
The Rose Bowl is nearly upon us. Go Ducks! Have a safe and happy New Years all!
