"I began to find myself searching
Searching for shelter again and again
Against the wind
A little something against the wind
I found myself seeking shelter against the wind
Well those drifter's days are past me now
I've got so much more to think about
Deadlines and commitments
What to leave in, what to leave out”
My favorite part of that song is where talks about his “drifter days are past him now” “He’s got so much more to think about, deadlines and commitments, what to leave in what to leave out.”
There’s a nostalgia for me about being young for a lot of reasons. Me and my wife were talking about it the other day. We miss the day’s when thinking about getting old and worrying about our futures was the last thing we thought about. No kids, or when we did have them they were young enough that all we had to worry about was keeping their diapers changed and fed, pretty simple. Older kids are so much more worry.
All I cared about when I was young was getting to the next rodeo. Thinking about retirement, my health, the world around me, money, that was what old people did. Not me. Now I think about all those things on a daily basis. Not sure how it happened but it did. I guess it’s a good thing, there’s something about a forty five year old guy who still thinks he’s twenty five(no one likes that guy, especially his wife. Who matured a lot faster)
Maturing and changing is a part of life, but I miss the innocence of being young...
