Time

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it’s sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a relative way, but you’re older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

Time, Pink Floyd

Coincidence is a funny thing. I was cleaning out my office here at home this evening, and ran across an unopened CD package of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. This package was unopened because it was a spare copy I picked up somewhere years ago; I already had a (well-used) copy at the time. That original is now long since misplaced (along with most of my CD’s from college), so I opened the package and ripped the CD into iTunes.

Even before listening to it, the lyrics to Time started rolling around in my head. It’s always been one of my favorite tracks from this album, but seemed especially apropos. For the reason I was cleaning my office was to make room for my birthday present.

Shorter of breath, and one day year closer to death.

    Nice present!<br/>

    Dark side is the reason I bought a CD player way back in ’85. I have at least three different versions. When I saw the title of this entry, I immediately thought “one day closer to death”.

    Nice present, though! Happy Birthday!

    I hope it was a good one! Post some of your music sometime; I promise to “torture” you with some of mine…
