Lose Yourself


Inasmuch as a 45 year-old white guy can appreciate hip-hop (and this coming from a guy who appreciates all good performances across all genres), I caught a hip-hop performance that moved me today...and all the way as far as context is concerned.

This is what, I guess, could be called the refrain from 8 Mile. Lose Yourself won an Oscar, I think.

You'd better lose yourself
In the music
the moment

You want it
You better never let it go
You only get one shot

Do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes only
Once in a lifetime


---Eminem

There's your moment of zen for the day.
