I had a conversation with a friend about getting older, quality of life, and how baby boomers are continuing to try and re-invent everything. Out of this conversation came a great “What If,” which I want to explore and ask YOU what you would do?

What are YOU thankful for this Thanksgiving? We shared the blessings we all have and gave thanks – with each other – Thursday, November 15 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. PT/9:00 – 10:00 p.m. ET – the week before Thanksgiving. Don’t you know that GRATITUDE is the single biggest ingredient to happiness? The homework for this #DadChat was to read Thanksgiving Gratitude for the Whole Family.
God’s drug is music – if God had a drug that is. Some of my best thinking is when I walk around the lake near our home. Often, I will listen to music. My taste is decidedly eclectic and recently I listened to the overture from The King and I and realized how I’ve grown to appreciate beautiful music more as I’ve aged in sharp contrast to my son’s love of angry rock ‘n’ roll. Yeah, I still love the music I grew up with but I now tend to appreciate more classical, standards, and even country. And, let’s face it music and love certainly go together well!
A Theory About Our Music Taste
I have a theory about the average person’s music taste. It is simply that it is formed during the decade or so from the teens to career and marriage. Obviously, that may be more than a decade but the idea remains the same regardless of the exact number of years.
First time, I started off on the wrong foot by wanting to know why my wife had no relationship with one of her sisters. Evidently, wrong question. I then completely ate my foot when they offered to get us a camcorder for a wedding present and I had the temerity to want a voice in the choice. Being in the “business,” I knew what features I wanted. Oops.
