it’s Sunday morning and the skies overhead are clear and as blue as you would ever want. Birds have been telling the world just how great this morning is for a while now and I tend to agree whole heartedly with them.
The streets are quiet outside so far, no one is around, no kids are playing yet on the green opposite where I live but all that will change pretty soon.
Peace and quiet reign supreme on this, most beautiful of mornings. How many mornings like this do we get to see in a lifetime, I wonder?
In an earlier post I wrote about our time on Earth being a finite experience and something I watched on tv the other night brought this home in a rather unusual way.
I was watching a sci fi movie from 1983 or thereabouts called Spacehunter, adventures in the Forbidden Zone, a typical ‘B’ movie type but entertaining none the less. It was set in 2021 and we’d travelled to the stars, colonised planets and so on. The point is, back in ’83 we probably thought 2021 was far enough in the future for some of those things to happen, but now in 2011, just a decade from when it was set and we’re as far away from it happening as we were in ’83 AND it’s just around the corner.
Time has a habit of passing without us really taking notice, we just carry on with our lives thinking that we have all the time in the world and we haven’t. We have NO idea what’s around the next corner or what we’ll get up to in the morning so please people, appreciate everything you have in this life. Cherish relationships, don’t leave off telling someone you love them until tomorrow because they may not be here.
Anyway, enough of my preaching, go out and enjoy,
see you soon
