Dreams & Dust


So I took a break from writing my book and was reading the lyrics to the song "Dreams Don't Turn to Dust," by Owl City and the very first comment under the posting said this:

"Well guys, chase your dreams and enjoy the journey, but don't rush what's left of your adolescence either. I'm 18 and about half way to 19 and I regret every second I wasted at 14/15...."

I assume he was giving his sage advice to guys younger than him.

My only thoughts were that this poor kid has no clue about regret (at least not yet)... But, I'm not judging. At that age we ALL had our own little dramas --- When I was that age I think I was either just getting married or just at the beginning of my divorce (can't quite remember).

Looking back, though.... it sure can make me shudder, but it can also make me smile. Same goes for the future. Hope that 18 (and a half) year old knows there is so much more of life to come -to flood- his way and it too will make him shudder......... and smile. ;-)

As always – Enjoy Your Life!
