Hey, I did have a dream. Not very exciting. Kinda sad, but not colossally so.
My husband was telling me he wanted to raise goats, meaning, here's my calling, I'm starting my own business, no more commuting split-life.
I was happy and sad. I listened to him and knew I couldn't help him, plus I was
too old to have another child--somehow this was important to me, not him. I finally said that that was wonderful, but I didn't see how I could help him. He seemed o.k. but I felt...lost? In time?
The rolling stones 'what a drag it is growing old'. Not that I am a Stones fan.
When I was a kid, the Beatles & the Stones were opposites, the way chocolate and vanilla are considered by some.
The Stones wrote some good songs though. One time, I was at a (really) long
stoplight with my son. Someone with a majorly fine sound system was playing that song, 'you can't always get what you want'. My son sings it from memory now.
It's become part of our negotiation
strategy. I can say, well you can't always get what you want....
And he'll sing back, but if you try some times....
And if we're lucky, he'll be content for awhile.
* and whoever gazes at the stars will never again be quite alone...
