Yes, forgiveness - and I think it's time for me to forgive. It's been a number of years, and my pain still runs deep. I feel it every day in fact - usually I keep this to myself, only sharing with the people closest to me as they help me cope. Sometimes I can go for hours without thinking about it, but other times I'll hide in a room by myself and, well, cry. But I do think its time to simply let it go. Maybe simply to say" it's over, it's past, just move on".
I'm sure you know what I'm talking about at this point - Disco.
A dark era in American music - mid to late 70's, and I still feel the pain every day. When I close my eyes, I can still see the Bee Gee's singing "Saturday Night Fever" while tight dressed, hairy chested tight panted guys with way too many necklaces "danced" around to that noise. And I can still see "Rod the Bod" Stewart asking "Do ya think I'm sexy", and it brings pain to my heart. Man, this hurts to write..
As you can imagine, I was a card carrying D.R.E.A.D member
Well, As I was running on one of my weekend "long runs" (a sad 8 on Saturday, and barely even 10 on Sunday), I realized that it was time to Forgive, and specifically, I think I need to forgive Rod Stewart. Ok, ok, I know it's hard, and I'll attach a sorry video of him below, but you know, check out the second, it really is a pretty good song. Right? RIGHT???
So help me forgive, and lets put this all behind us. I'm sorry about it, and I know you are too. But you know, I was very young at the time, and really it was too bad for Rod as rumors spread about Doctors pumping a pint of a certain fluid out of his stomach (I'm not saying I helped spread that rumor, and I'm not saying I didn't). Be strong my friends... Be strong....
