If you're into Punk Rock you may remember an album called, "Year of the Iguana". The album was made by Iggy and The Stooges.
Some of you may remember the group. I called my son up to find out if he knew about the album and he told me that he actually went to see Iggy Pop on his Las Vegas honeymoon.
What a hoot!
I just happened to draw an Iguana. He's rather a colorful beast with dreadlocks and a party hat. Cause that's what you do when you're an Iguana. He's a rockin' island iguana.
I feel like I know this guy. He's a little rough round the edges but really wants to be smooth and have style.
I'm declaring 2018 the Year of the Iguana. I hope we all get to put our party hats on and feel real loose like a long necked goose. Oh baby, that's what I like.
As I'm apt to do sometimes, at this time of year, I think about time gone by; what's happened and what has yet to happen. I've been a lucky guy all my life. I don't know how it happens but somehow it does. It really does.
I think of it like the stock market.
My life has been a "Random Walk".
"The random walk hypothesis is a financial theory stating that stock market prices evolve according to a random walk (so price changes are random) and thus cannot be predicted."
Like the stock market my life has been a "random walk" but it has been in an overwhelmingly positive direction.
So I take it all, the good and the challenging, and make of it what I can. Which is really all anybody can do.
Celebrate the opening of the Year of the Iguana with me and make it one full of wonderfulness and joy!
Yesterday told me to learn.
Today tells me to yearn.
Tomorrow never comes.
Yesterday is only lingering vapor.
It's the breeze that built today.
Today’s big plans are only silent dreams,
Only a specter of what tomorrow might be.
Tomorrow will be the same as today
Unless you’re willing to take a chance.
Before today becomes your yesterday
Do something positive and wise.
Do something you can be proud of.
Learn yesterday's lessons
What of tomorrow?
Tomorrow will never be.
