Je regrette

I was going through some old papers and keepsakes, and came across a picture and program from a voice recital I did when I was back in high school.

My teacher had me sing Send in the Clowns.

I performed it impeccably, with all of the mustered angsty emotion my 17-year-old drama-club self could muster.

I couldn't help but think how silly it was for someone so young to sing that song. No amount of "getting into character" could have given me the insight on what was really happening in it.

I was missing two key things - experience and regrets.
