sometimes i wish
There's a song by Colin Hay called 'Sometimes I Wish'. It's often in my head when I take walks with Alice and pass beautiful abandoned houses, or see the old green Ford pickup truck, that I often see, on one of the back roads near my house. The song is about the way things once were and aren't anymore, and wishing he could have lived during those earlier times, despite the hardships. Sometimes when I see a row of country mailboxes by the road or linger in front of one of those forgotten houses, I too wish I could have lived during another time. Sometimes.
