I thought I was smart - I thought I was right
I thought it better not to fight - I thought there was a
Virtue in always being cool - so when it came time to
Fight I thought I’ll just step aside and that time would
Prove you wrong and that you would be the fool -

I don’t know where the sun beams end and the star
Light begins it’s all a mystery

Oh to fight is to defend if it’s not
Now than tell me when would be the time that you would stand up
And be a man - for to lose I could accept but to surrender
I just wet and regretted this moment - oh that I - I
Was the fool

I don’t know where the sun beams end and the star
Light begins it’s all a mystery
And I don’t know how a man decides what right for his
Own life - it’s all a mystery

Cause I’m a man not a boy and there are things
You can’t avoid you have to face them when you’re not prepared
To face them -
If I could I would but you’re with him now it’d do no good
I should have fought him but instead I let him - I let
Him take it -

I don’t know where the sun beams end and the star
Light begins it’s all a mystery
And I don’t know how a man decides what right for his
Own life - it’s all a mystery

/ - such a great song with devastating lyrics…

"it’s all a mystery"

Father
It’s not time to make a change,
Just relax, take it easy.
You’re still young, that’s your fault,
There’s so much you have to know.
Find a girl, settle down,
If you want you can marry.
Look at me, I am old, but I’m happy.

I was once like you are now, and I know that it’s not easy,
To be calm when you’ve found something going on.
But take your time, think a lot,
Why, think of everything you’ve got.
For you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not.

Son
How can I try to explain, when I do he turns away again.
It’s always been the same, same old story.
From the moment I could talk I was ordered to listen.
Now there’s a way and I know that I have to go away.
I know I have to go.

Father
It’s not time to make a change,
Just sit down, take it slowly.
You’re still young, that’s your fault,
There’s so much you have to go through.
Find a girl, settle down,
if you want you can marry.
Look at me, I am old, but I’m happy.

Son
All the times that I cried, keeping all the things I knew inside,
It’s hard, but it’s harder to ignore it.
If they were right, I’d agree, but it’s them you know not me.
Now there’s a way and I know that I have to go away.
I know I have to go.

"Lucky at love, well maybe so 
 There’s still a lot of things you’ll never know 
 Like why each time the sky begins to snow,
 you cry”

Movie Night - last night…
- It was really cool watching Julia in a more serious role. She was funny, of course, but also sad and tortured and complex - and it was interesting watching the familiar character she always plays come out in little pieces here and there. 
- The story lines about the different kids getting ready to leave for college and how the characters are coping with it were pretty heartbreaking. Julia in particular really portrayed what it must be like to have to deal with this. All the worry and emptiness and sense of loss. I’m personally not looking forward to it.
- James Gandolfini’s charm kept bursting out of his character’s sadness. His charm and confidence was what we liked the most about Tony Soprano and there was a little of it here. His character was overweight and there was a lot made of this in the plot. He was bigger and older and out of shape looking. It was ironic considering he died shortly after this movie was made of a heart attack. Was he like this just for the movie or was he like this also in real life? It was hard not to think about while watching. 
- James and Julia had a lot of chemistry that was fun to watch. The plot had a twist in it that could’ve easily sent the movie off it’s rails, but it quietly handled the twist in a realistic way and ended the movie in the right tone. High-res

There was this guy that used to work for me years ago - his name was Chris - he was a big tough guy with a thick red beard - he had a rough life, but always had a smile on his face and a great sense of humor - he had a kid and was on and off with his kid’s mom - I helped him get a better job and I sold him this condo my wife and I lived in before we bought our house - I let him buy it for less than what I could’ve gotten for it - to try to help him out - one day I saw him at the gym and this song came on - he told me he loved this song - that it reminded him of his father and how he left when he was young - and how hard growing up was - he said he didn’t want to do that to his son - he was trying not to tear up when he said it - a couple years later he died of a drug overdose - he ended up doing the same thing to his son….  

It’s hard to listen to this song - I miss Chris’ big smile…

Oh man…

We are leaving for our Disney World trip in a few days - it’s our annual trip but it’s been well over a year since our last - so there has been tons of planning and anticipation and counting down the days - and while we can’t wait to go - there is also a sadness that all the fun of looking forward to this year’s trip is almost over - that my daughter will only be this age this time and will be so much different the next time we go - that years from now she will look so young in the pictures and we will be sad remembering this trip and realizing how fast time goes by…
