A Man Who Has Nothing In Particular To Recommend Him Discusses All Sorts of Subjects at Random as Though He Knew Everything

It’s Hard To Get Old

You can die young, or get old and watch everyone you know die. It’s a crummy choice, and insult to injury, the choice is made for you, anyway. Everyone works it out as best they can. 

I can hear you calling my name

Or somebody’s whispering

That sounds like you

I can see you standing in the shade

The sun is glistening

And it’s blinding my view

I can feel your touch on my face

I remember kissing you

For the first time

I can sense you just out of fray

And I’ll be reminiscin’

For the rest of my life

Never loved anyone

I never loved anybody

But you Baby

Never been lucky baby

I never bet winners

But I’ll never say never again

  1. This may sound odd, but, I went to a surf school in Costa Rica in February. The proprietor is American, and opened up shop 16 years ago. He looks very much like Mr. McLagan does, now, but, I am sure in his prime, he was something to behold. He still performed every evening after dinner..the same drunkin surf dude routine, that I am sure he did earnestly in the beginning. As one of the older of the group…it kind of made me sad. He was doing the best he could… getting older.
