Song of the Day: 'I Wanna Go Back' by Eddie Money


Certainly seemed apropos that I would hear this while driving around my childhood neighborhood yesterday afternoon in Mesa after dropping my stepfather off for his latest PET scan. I managed to sneak in a coffee with a friend from high school with whom I had a falling out my junior year. Although I don't have many regrets in life, it was painful to see how badly she had been hurt by that year's events -- even all these decades later the pain was still palpable. (She too was back in Arizona following the death of her mother, caring for her father suffering from Alzheimer's.) So while I certainly don't "wanna go back," it would be nice to fine-tune a few moments here and there. It was nice that we were able to tie up some loose ends and commiserate over our current lots in life.
