Subject: RE: Info req: The Cat's in the Cradle
To keep it simple.......Harry was just using phrases alluding to childhood which is what the song is quickly it passes and that moments spent with your children are precious. Time comes all too soon that they are gone. Time lost can never be regained, it is time lost forever.

When Karen and I decided I should quit amd become a fulltime Dad and househusband, I wrote my resignation letter to the Fortune 500 I was with saying, "I don't want my life of that of my sons' to wind up like a Harry Chapin song lyric." They had no idea what I was talking about which made the decision infinitely easier.
