Posted in New Year's Eve

“…the audience was heavenly, but the traveling was hell…”

A #ThrowbackThursday post from 2016 to mark the new year…

As I’m waiting for my friend’s show to begin, I’m listening to Dan Fogelberg’s “Old Lang Syne”.

It’s one of those great songs that tells a story about a love that was and what became of the two lovers behind the song.  The woman marries an architect and obviously has a pretty good life.  The guy, clearly a musician, is still a musician but it’s hard to tell how successful he has been over the years.

A great song that truly resonates with New Year’s eve and really makes you think about “what might have been”.


I'm a writer. I'm also a wife and a parent who works too much and lives too little. In addition to writing I also love to read, listen to music, travel, cook, I enjoy looking for bargains at flea markets or thrift stores, Christmas, football and of course writing! How did I come up with the title of my blog? Two things: 1. I live in New England (duh) and 2. Canadian singer Alan Frew once arrogantly told me to "get a New England life"--again--DUH! I already HAVE one!
