Do you know that song that everybody erroneously thinks the name is I’ve Looked at Clouds and that Judy Collins wrote? I’ve been humming that song today—which is really named Both Sides Now and was written by Joni Mitchell—as I recorded this episode of Red Belly Radio. Why you may ask? Well, on this episode of Red Belly Radio, I recap my favorite thing to do on July 4, which ends with my observation of watching fireworks displays from an aircraft at 30,000 ft.
The new verse, in my head, goes something like:
I’ve looked at fireworks from both sides now, and then again, I still say wow!...
You get the idea, it only works if you really force it and don’t try too hard to make sense of it.
In addition to buying cars and mattresses (that are always on sale over the 4th), I like to float in an inner tube on the Comal River in New Braunfels, Texas. Spring fed and constant 72 degrees all year round, there is nothing better.
Also in this episode, the winner of the tagline contest. I don’t want to spoil the surprise, and it seems only fitting to announce the winner in the podcast. So go click on the Red Belly Radio corner to hear the big news and how I like to spend the 4th.
