Every summer, my dad's best friend and I would sit down and play Cribbage on the porch of my family's cottage overlooking a lake in New Hampshire. There was this one time that we were playing Cribbage, and we started to listen to "Dark Side of the Moon." My dad's friend specifically pointed out to me during the song "Time" that, "Joe, I want you to pay attention to this song, it's very important. You'll understand when you're older. Trust me."
I listened ever so closely, and I caught a particular notice to the line, "And then one day you'll find, ten years have got behind you, no one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun," followed immediately by a David Gilmour guitar solo. Great song.
Years later, my dad's best friend and I were sitting on the same New Hampshire cottage porch playing Cribbage and listening to Pink Floyd when he told me, "Now, remember Joe, you first listened to this song ten years ago." And that was when it hit me:
I first heard this song ten years ago, and it warned me that I would not have accomplished anything I had wanted. I feared the realization that all I could have accomplished so much: Traveling the world, becoming a teacher, earning a Ph.D, writing a book, and so forth, but no one had told me when to run, and I had missed the starting gun. There an overwhelming sense of failure running through my mind.
Luckily, that was not the case, as there's nothing more I've needed in my life than a good game of Cribbage, and an ice cold Pabst Blue Ribbon beer.
Crisis averted. Phew.
Recently, I've become obsessed with thinking about how cheese is made. Not the actual process of making cheese itself, but just thinking about the process.
Also, I haven't played cribbage in about four years.
