Free Thinking Friday

Last night Alan and I went to the James Taylor concert. I've been listening to James Taylor since I was about 6 years old. When I realized that, I stopped and did the math. James Taylor is 64 years old!?!
He told a story last night about 1968. That was the year The Beatles signed him to Apple Records. They recorded with him on at least one track. He said when that door opened, it showed him the rest of his life.
How cool is that? To be able to know the exact moment your life altered forever.
He sang my favorite song during the second set "The Secret of Life". Every time I hear that song, it makes me stop and think about my life. I forget sometimes that it's okay to enjoy my life -- to have fun, to love, to relax and enjoy the wonderful people in my life.
So here's my wish for all of you today (even if it is Friday the 13th). Spend some time with the people you love. Enjoy the passage of time. And smile while you're doing it.
Peace.


The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time 
Any fool can do it 
There ain't nothing to it 
Nobody knows how we got to 
The top of the hill 
But since we're on our way down 
We might as well enjoy the ride 

The secret of love is in opening up your heart 
It's okay to feel afraid 
But don't let that stand in your way 
'cause anyone knows that love is the only road 
And since we're only here for a while 
Might as well show some style 
Give us a smile 

Isn't it a lovely ride 
Sliding down 
Gliding down 
Try not to try too hard 
It's just a lovely ride 

Now the thing about time is that time 
Isn't really real 
It's just your point of view 
How does it feel for you 
Einstein said he could never understand it all 
Planets spinning through space 
The smile upon your face 
Welcome to the human race 

Some kind of lovely ride 
I'll be sliding down 
I'll be gliding down 
Try not to try too hard 
It's just a lovely ride 

Isn't it a lovely ride 
Sliding down 
Gliding down 
Try not to try too hard 
It's just a lovely ride 

Now the secret of life is enjoying the passage of time
