Since starting this diabetes-themed blog over a year ago, the inclusion of musical references has been a recurring theme.
- Lyrics from the Beatles have appeared…
- I wove Meat Loaf into a teenage memory…
…and considered swapping my disease for Bon Jovi’s.
- A Credence Clearwater Revival song led to my first DOC Meetup…
…and running into a long-lost high-school classmate was like Peaches reuniting with Herb.
- A catchy little ditty from Blues Traveler sang the praises of automatic data logging…
…while a Melissa Etheridge lyric titled a post about my great-aunt’s funeral.
- Although I shamelessly made a mockery of Canada’s national anthem…
…some boys from Kansas knew exactly how I managed to Carry On.
Even the very name of this blog is inspired by a Grammy Award-winner’s song title.
But today, after reading another blog post today on SurfaceFine, I thought of a song that I used to listen to when I needed inspiration. A song about all the stuff I had put off until tomorrow — a tomorrow that has yet to come.

For the next week, I’ll be participating in the 3rd Annual Diabetes Blog Week (for more info, click on the banner above). Each day, D-Bloggers will be (mostly) blogging about a common topic but offering their own perspectives.
I’m not a real shutterbug, so instead of posting a collection of photos, I’ve decided to go with one of the week’s wildcard options and opt for the musical approach. No, I won’t sing (you’ll need to do that yourself, in your own head), but the tune should be familiar – it’s to the national anthem O Canada. (If you don’t know the tune, click on the video at the bottom of the page.)
