This song just brings a smile to my face every time | @SOJAlive | “Let You Go” | #Happy Saturday
I bargained with life for a penny
And life would pay no more,
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty score.
For Life is a just employer,
He gives you what you ask,
But once you set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.
I worked for a menial’s hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have willingly paid.

Nothing recharges my batteries like fresh air, sunshine, and a bent rod… The Tug’s the Drug!
As a man (vs. a boy), I often get caught up in the day to day process of getting it all done. I forget joy. I forget nature. I forget that its all so amazing. When we’re kids, the wonder of the world is right there. As a man, I’m supposed to be excited by a fumble in football, or a spike in the stock market. But this? This reminds me I’m living in the middle of a miracle.”

The adjacent possible is a kind of shadow future, hovering on the edges of the present state of things, a map of all the ways in which the present can reinvent itself.”
