was that all it was

“This day is a special day, it is yours. Yesterday slipped away, it cannot be filled anymore with meaning. About tomorrow nothing is known. But this day, today, is yours, make use of it. Today you can make someone happy. Today you can help another. This day is a special day, it is yours.”

i spent yesterday with 2 groups of guys who are living in a halfway house. there was a distinct difference in the energy of the 2 groups.the first group was packed to the gills and filled with whining, blaming, and posturing. the second was dominated by individuals who are taking responsibility for their situations and trying to make some changes.

i was relieved that the last group was the motivated group. it left me with a sense of hope. it also left me with a sense of ennui. i came home and downloaded some old tunes by a 1970’s recording artist who was popular at some of the clubs i loved. i definitely have lived an amazing life, seen,heard, and participated in astonishing bits of twentieth century culture, and lived a life in vivid technicolor.

is there a connection here? not sure, but after ongoing and intermittent reflection, i believe that today is the miracle in front of me. i can’t change the past, but can change the lens it is viewed through and i can immediately affect the future.

many thanks to jean carne because after all these decades, her voice and her work still inspire me.
