“For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin – real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be got through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.”
Alfred D’Souza, in “Seven Choices”
BONUS BEST of PONDER on THIS by Jackson Browne
“Let the disappointments pass
Let the laughter fill your glass
Let your illusions last, until they shatter.
Whatever you might hope to find,
Among the thoughts that crowd your mind,
There won’t be many, that ever really matter.
But take good care of your mother,
And remember to be kind,
When the pain of another will serve you to remind,
That there are those who feel themselves exiled
On whom the fortune never smiled
And upon whose lives the heartache has been piled.”
Jackson Brown, in his 1976 song “The Only Child” from “The Pretender” CD
