Letting Go

... ride off into the horizon ...

Whenever I hear about some political person who is in hot water announce that he is resigning in order to spend more time with his or her family I sort of chuckle.  Makes me sort of wonder if the family would like to spend time with the newly unemployed. In the old cowboy movies the hero would just get on his faithful horse and ride off into the horizon but for many of us aging geezers life becomes a real challenge when we discover we just can’t do some of the things we used to do or hoped to do but didn’t have the time to do.  Too often I hear of someone who intends to retire to a lifetime of golf only to discover that when they do retire they can no longer hit the ball.  Or the would be pianist who finds that her hand cramps up when she plays for more than a few minutes.  There are dozens of ways that your body can let you down when it comes to the time when you finally have the time to spend on your dream. The secret is to be found in the lyric of a song I penned a few years ago.  “Don’t wait too long to make your dreams come true.”

  1. Art,

    I always look forward to reading your Memo everyweek. But, I really
    was hit by that quote about “Don’t wait too long to make your dreams come true.” I know quite a few people who did just that: waited too long. Where could I find the rest of the words?

    Thanks so much and keep your Memo’s coming,
