Honor of a Lifetime

From sire to sire, It’s born in the blood … The fire from a mare and the strength of a stud … It’s breeding and it’s training and it’s something unknown … That drives you and carries you home … And it’s run for the roses as fast as you can … Your fate is delivered, your moment’s at hand … It’s the chance of a lifetime in a lifetime of chance … And it’s high time you joined in the dance … —“Run for the Roses” by Dan Fogelberg … … The Kentucky Derby, also known as the Run for the Roses, has been labeled the most exciting two minutes in sports.

I had an epiphany one day while watching an Oprah interview on YouTube. Maybe this sounds odd to some but growing up in a household with a mother who dished out Oprah and Dr. Phil quotes like they were pieces of Halloween candy, this was hardly anything out of the ordinary for me. In a 2011 interview, Rihanna tearfully told Oprah that the only way she could allow herself to be vulnerable enough to let a man romantically pursue her was by first “repairing her relationship with her dad.” After she forgave her father, she could finally work on trusting men again.

If you’ve never had the pleasure of hearing Kacey Musgraves’ music, I highly recommend you grab your phone immediately, open up the music streaming service of your choice, and hit play on her 2018 Grammy-award-winning album, Golden Hour. It was the soundtrack to my life the entire year after it dropped, and apparently, the mark it made was significant enough for it to be the catalyst for this article I’m writing today, six years after its release. … I’ve probably heard Golden Hour’s opening track, “Slow Burn,” over a thousand times by this point.
