Garbage Out

Days sheltering in place: 141.
Exercise: Walked to target and back.
Keyboarding: slightly better entertainer.

My wife asked when I would start playing Bohemian Rhapsody. Even if I could learn, it, and I think I need a full 88 key piano to do it justice, I don't think I could ever bring myself to disgrace Freddies memory with my poor playing. Maybe if I just limit myself to the one bar and leave it at that.

"Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth. Oh, never mind. You will not understand the power and beauty of your youth until they've faded. But trust me, in 20 years, you'll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you can't grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked."
          - Mary Schmich

I remember March, and now it is August. What happened? They say as you get older time goes faster, for which there are many theories as to why it feels this way. All I have to say is, it is true, if you don't think you have enough time in every day, wait ten years. If you find you have too much time on your hands and wonder what to do with it all, I hope you look back in ten years and don't feel you squandered what little time you had.

I finally took out the trash.
