hopes and regrets


having said the wrong thing. having said the right thing at the wrong time. a handful of half-read books on my nightstand. thin patience. having missed seeing david byrne on broadway. too much complaining. letting time slip through my hands. knee-jerk reactions. time on social media. missed and mixed priorities. complacency. too much focus on politics and the news. pettiness. friends' unanswered emails in my inbox that are over a year old.


carve time out to read books during the day. get more sleep. work on my neglected memoir. take up running for the umpteenth time. get out with my girlfriends more often. more simple pleasures like bringing cut flowers into the home. be a better correspondent. get out of town. praise more, complain less. help elect a decent, experienced, respected, measured president. seizure freedom for calvin.
