I met an old man named Don in a bar the other night. We discussed the movie The Quiet Man, with John Wayne and Maureen O’hara, and briefly sang “She’ll Be Coming ‘Round the Mountain When She Comes”. Before he left, he leaned over and told me “you can never do what you want to do”. He seemed sad, like he was looking his past dead in the eye and it was full of regrets.
Me, a cup of tea, a hot bubble bath, and a good book.
