Just sitting back waiting for the painkillers to kick in and hoping the vodka helps, so I decided to write. I really do not have anything to say. I’m just sitting at the same coffee shop at the same table in the same city as usual. I guess I’m 70% recovered from one of those stupid injuries that happen to remind you how futile it is to make plans or maybe to emotionally invest in those plans. I guess there is really nothing wrong with planning for a future and working towards those plans, setting goals and achieving those goals. The problem is when those dreams, dreams, become so real that when they do not come true there exists a true sense of loss, loss of something that never existed.
This is where I would go into my story, how a little injury caused me to adjust my plans, helped me to see things clearer. I’m not going to do that now and I may never. Sometimes what you learn is not for sharing.
A friend just stopped by to chat, so its 20 minutes later, the painkiller finally kicked in and the vodka has smoothed out the buzz. I’m really not sure where I was going with all this. I just would encourage everyone to dream and to plan and to take steps to make those dreams come true. But, do not spend so much time dreaming that you do not enjoy the moment. This is where we are and it’s really all we have. And know that dreams are not real. This moment is all that is real. Do not waste this real moment lamenting the loss of a dream that never existed.
I guess that’s all for now. I cannot believe you cats are still checking this site.
Thanks for stopping by.
