  • Mood:
The theme of the past couple of months, in my head, can be pretty nicely summed up through these two quotes:

1. "Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans." -John Lennon

2. "How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives." -Annie Dillard

These, of course, are different angles on the same thing.

Just recently, I've added another:

"Will you please start thinking that this is a good time now?" -some guy I met whose name I don't remember

I've decided that the first two are a good foundation and the last is the right rallying cry for the next year or so. Quit planning and start doing.
