“Those were the best days of my life” – Bryan Adams
“These are the best days of my life” – Me
I attended the original Woodstock in 1969, and I attended the 50-year reunion in 2019. Then I had more hair; now I have more wisdom. Then I was looking for the purpose of life; now I have the prize of life. Then I had my whole life ahead of me; now I have my granddaughter’s life ahead of me.
I still have my health, and I have more wealth. My family has expanded, but not my waistline. The music has changed, and so have I. I will take my life now at 67 over the life I had then at 17.
