I have decided to adopt the song "I Take My Chances" as my official blog anthem.
It's not that it captures the spirit of my life. It doesn't. At all. I am not much of a gambler or a risk-taker. Nor do I smoke. Nor do I watch CNN.
But something in the spirit of the lyrics does capture how I'd like to be.
It makes me feel a little bit reckless and strong and . . . fun. And that is what I am going for on this blog.
My favorite verse?
I sat alone in the dark one night, tuning in by remote.
I found a preacher who spoke of the light but there was brimstone in his throat.
He'd show me the way according to him in return for my personal check.
I flipped my channel back to CNN and lit another cigarette.
