Music Monday - The Chance of a Lifetime
I had never been to a horse race, before I moved to Lexington Kentucky in 1995. I enjoyed it. I also got to know people whose lives are devoted to breeding and training horses. They are incredibly devoted to their work, to the wellbeing of the somewhat fragile animals they raise, for that long shot at success. More money is spent than made in racing.
I remember when this song came out in the early 1980's. The message of taking the chance of a lifetime clicked for me. I have taken a few of those chances, and passed on a couple of them over the years (one passed opportunity leaves me wondering, what if I had?) The message rings true 40 years later.
Are you ready for the next opportunity?
