Saturday’s Song: Here I Go Again

Twice over the past week, Whitesnake’s Here I Go Again has come on the radio in my car. Hearing it while driving reminds me of the days when I used to listen to the song on cassette while cruising in my Camaro. Now that I’ve said that, I feel the need to disclose that I’m not quite as old as that statement might lead one to believe 😉

Saturday’s Song: Why You Gotta Be So Mean?

A few days ago, I wrote about the importance of having compassion for your enemies. Remember, when someone acts in a way that brings you misery, s/he is doing so for his/her own reasons which have very little to do with you.

Saturday’s Song: One Day At a Time

Towards the end of my marriage, I used to watch a lot of One Day at a Time reruns. My favorite part was the beginning, where Ann puts down her suitcases and jumps for joy as she’s leaving her old home to start over. When I finally left my home to start over, I wasn’t carrying suitcases, I was holding the leashes of two dogs. Such circumstances precluded me from immitating Ann’s moment of freedom. Still, I love the song… and the saga…
