Bastards on Parade

"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!

  1. Starting over sounds exciting. What an advernture you have in store. I have always enjoyed turning new corners myself.

    Will mistakes happen? Sure, so what? Life goes on and so will you.

    Anyway, I hope you enjoy your Bowl game. BTW thank your Ducks for the tips they gave my Bucs who have won 2 games in a row. Woot!

    A safe and happy New Years back at ya.

  3. "My follies in life are somewhat legendary." I am your twin in this.

    But better to take riks and make mistakes and truly live than to lock yourself away. Here's to a great new decade!

  4. Great song and a perfect song for a lot of us for whatever reason. If you feel the need to start over, hold no regrets, carry no grudges and learn from the past. Happy New Year, Ananda Girl.

    PS--I could care less, but for the sake of argument...GO BUCKS!

  5. Happy New Year! Since my beloved BC Eagles already lost their bowl game, I'll be glad to root for your Ducks!

  6. Cube-- Yay! For your Bucs!

    Life is an adventure. I think the key is learning to understand the difference between a guarantee... and a gift. Most things are gifts, and we don't always notice.
