This Might Be My Funeral Song
No matter how far wrong you’ve gone
you can always
turn around ~ Bill Callahan
There is an aching and hopeful tenderness in the prophetic lyrics of Bill Callahan's (aka "Smog") song, "I'm New Here".
He has great taste in music.
Please listen here. You may want to hear it again and again.
At the two-week mark into 2019, some of us may thinking about turning around. It's even taken some time for my mind to wrap around the 2019 intention, Connection. I'm finally getting into the groove. Maybe too much.
I cannot NOT see connections.
That's how bad or good it is. Right now I feel like like I'm playing a weird game of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon in my head. I see a connection between everything! But, though it's making me a little crazy at the moment, I'm not giving up on it. That's one of great things about a theme as opposed to resolution. There's flexibility. In fact, even if you did choose a resolution that is getting more difficult to maintain; maybe you'll consider trying an intention. It's never too late to turn around.
Turn around, turn around, turn around And you may come full circle And be new here again
