Wasting time with those you love

Anne and Steve Hennigs

There is a great song by the band Phish entitled “Waste”.  As I reflect on the first year of my life without my Mom I keep thinking how great it was that I did get to “waste” so much time with her.  I only wish I could have wasted more.

Here are the lyrics to Waste for those not familiar with the song:

“Don’t want to be an actor pretending on the stage Don’t want to be a writer with my thoughts out on the page Don’t want to be a painter ’cause everyone comes to look Don’t want to be anything where my life’s an open book


A dream it’s true But I’d see it through If I could be Wasting my time with you


Don’t want to be a farmer working in the sun Don’t want to be an outlaw always on the run Don’t want to be a climber reaching for the top Don’t want to be anything where I don’t know when to stop


A dream it’s true But I’d see it through If I could be Wasting my time with you
So if I’m inside your head Don’t believe what you might have read You’ll see what I might have said To hear it

I love and miss you Mom and when the times comes I will be ready to waste eternity with you too.
