TIME IN A BOTTLE
Step back in time with me, like to the 70s. A singer songwriter by the name of Jim Croce was one of my favorite artists. Jim wrote a song to his wife at the time she was pregnant with their child in December 1970. The song was "Time in a Bottle". The song was buried in his first album, and was not intended to be released as a single, but when Jim was killed in a plane crash in September 1973, the songs lyrics, took on a new meaning with the wish of having more time. It was released as single and was No. 1 on the charts for several weeks.
You say, okay, why the trivia.... well, on a recent trip to Omaha, Nebraska, to complete my 16th marathon, I thought about this song. I write a lot of articles while on my long runs, and knowing I had a deadline coming up, the thoughts of this song turned in to this article.
