"Another trip around the sun...."

Jimmy Buffett is an entertainer I've enjoyed for years, attending his concerts and partying to his music with friends. But he had a song last year called "Trip Around the Sun" that struck home with me and I've pulled it out again this year on this day when I've completed another trip around the sun. Remember ... never regret growing old. Just think of the alternative.

Trip Around the Sun

Hear 'em singing Happy Birthday
Better think about the wish I made
This year gone by ain't been a piece of cake
Every day's a revolution
Pull it together and it comes undone
Just one more candle and a trip around the sun.

I'm just hanging on while this old world keeps spinning
And it's good to know it's out of my control
If there's one thing that I've learned from all this living
Is that it wouldn't change a thing if I let go....

No, you never see it coming
Always wind up wondering where it went
Only time will tell if it was time well spent
It's another revelation
Celebrating what I should have done
With these souvenirs of my trip around the sun.

Yes, I'll make a resolution
Then I'll never make another one
Just enjoy this ride on my trip around the sun
Just enjoy this ride ... until it's done.
