I live.

I live today. I hope to live tomorrow and maybe a few more.

I live today and have found myself happy. I am alive.

I live today to witness the sun and clouds, rain and snow.

I live today simply because I have not died. I am still here.

Very simple things to appreciate. How little we ponder the simple things while running our races, running our lives. How simple it is to just live. I lounged on my couch last-night pondering so many new decisions, so many concerns and stresses. What do I do with yet another business, Will it collide with my new found serenity? Will the money flow as I hope? Will love stumble across my path and then........................ A song, yet again, slapped me back into reality, back down to humbled knees. The song is of little importance but the clarity of its chorus was numbing "today...........today........todaaaaayyyyyyyyyy................"

I was reminded of a friend lost in 1988 and another in 1995. A friend jailed for life for a single act of stupidity and yet I'm still here. I witnessed them leave life, so young and vibrant, so happy. I am still alive, what a simple but priceless thing to understand-being alive. To think I/we complain about our lack of comfort in the bedroom, how vain, how insignificant.

I'm happy to be alive. Sounds pretty damn good when you say it out-loud.

See ya.
