Driven to write? Paint? Sing? Play a musical instrument? Love the arts?
How about using the now to shape a direction to a future so that what is not yet may not be as vaporous or hopeless?
This sounds like something I heard yesterday that was nowhere near so poetic: With a foot in yesterday and a foot in tomorrow, I piss on today. I told you it wasn't poetic.
Walking Man, nothing would please me more than knowing how to make the future brighter. Nothing. But I don't know if that's even possible. How can I be sure that my words to my son now will help him be a greater person in the future? How can I know that political steps I take will someday improve our country? I can only do what I feel is right RIGHT NOW. And if I only have my mind on the future, I miss out on today--if not completely, well, at least mostly. And that's not okay for me.Thanks Jeff!Enchanted Oak, true, it isn't quite poetic, but it still rings true, at least for me. I know of too many times when I have wasted the day thinking only about the past or worrying about the future.
