sing with me


me and coop...

Growing old is mandatory - Growing up is optional

it's this growing up thing that bewitches me. i stunted my emotional growth so much by staying loaded for so many years. each time i think i might be getting some maturity under my belt, i get walloped with a flood of some emotions that seems to send me back 30 years. still, i am so happy to finally be feeling any thing at all besides rejection and fear and thrilled i can find faith for what is to come.

thank goodness it's "progress not perfection"

Every time I look in the mirror
All these lines on my face getting clearer
The past is gone
It goes by, like dusk to dawn
Isn't that the way
Everybody's got their dues in life to pay

Yeah, I know nobody knows
where it comes and where it goes
I know it's everybody's sin
You got to lose to know how to win

Half my life
is in books' written pages
Lived and learned from fools and
from sages
You know it's true
All the things come back to you

Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tears
Sing with me, if it's just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good lord will take you away

Yeah, sing with me, sing for the year
sing for the laughter, sing for the tear
sing with me, if it's just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away

Dream On Dream On Dream On
Dream until your dreams come true
Dream On Dream On Dream On
Dream until your dream comes through
Dream On Dream On Dream On
Dream On Dream On
Dream On Dream On

Sing with me, sing for the year
sing for the laughter, sing for the tear
sing with me, if it's just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away
Sing with me, sing for the year
sing for the laughter, sing for the tear
Sing with me, if it's just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away......

Dude, we're all struggling to be at our maturity level! There's a new phrase I learned today from a very old man, "King Baby Syndrome." He was referring to a middle-aged man, who for lack of better words, was tantruming over something that didn't go his way. We all do it sometimes. But I never heard it coined as "King Baby Syndrome." I thought it was funny, and it made me think of times when I acted that way. Great picture by the way.
