I had a driveway moment yesterday and I wasn’t even in my driveway. I was sitting in the parking lot of Home Depot.
They describe Eugene, an old man in his nineties chasing a dream.
I want to be him when I’m that age. I want to have strange and kooky dreams and actually make them happen. I want to pull in the neighbor kids to help me out with those dreams. I want to make that rosemary honey.
I couldn’t turn it off until it was over.
I wish I could tell stories half as well as Stuart McLean tells ’em.
But I want to be the old man with the crazy ideas. Having the crazy goals and the devotion to follow through on them. All this is practice I guess… from motorcycle trips to NaNoWriMo.
All so worth it.
(Here’s a link to the MP3 from their site to listen to it if you want… I recommend it. It’s long… so surf while listening if you want to do something at the same time.)
