I am sitting in a wet grandstand, watching it rain. It's day 4 of a test match, that has already lost a days play, and it's pretty grim. Ground drainage in South Africa is v good .. Much better than some of the fancy grounds in England, I like to pound upon .. But, the amount of rain, gonna mean a pretty long delay.
And the forecast for Day 5 .. The last day, ain't looking good.
Anyway .. On my drive to the ground (thru solid rain for an Hr) .. I listened to a real gem.
Via a referral from the "Thinking Poker" podcast, which incidentally, has got me hooked on the music of Palmyra .. I have just listened to my first podcast, of "This American Life".
It's episode 541 .. And as luck would have it, it's titled "Regrets"
If here is one thing u do today, download this, and listen to it.
I will try put a link in .. But, the blogger app on the ipad, is pretty basic. (Or .. More likely really, I don't know which button to press, to find the link).
Anyway, the episode is about Regrets .. And makes a very fair point, that, the line is the song, "My way", made initially famous by Frank Sinatra, 'Regrets, I've had a few' .. Is just quality, but, it's killed, by the next line .. 'But then again, too few to mention'.
Everyone has regrets, tons and tons of them .. And it's only really when u hear about other people's lives, that u understand, how lucky, u actually are.
If u don't like podcasts, there is a transcript of the show .. Plse read.
Ok, am gonna post this .. It probably won't look right, but, will fix it later.
