For some reason I was inspired to look up an old song that my dorm roommate in college played endlessly over and over. Likewise, for some reason I felt inspired to write a blog in what has been ages. Maybe it's the start of a New Year... our our youngest dog, Cheli's, constant whining that's keeping me up and doing SOMETHING.
Please consider these following lyrics from Blues Traveler's "Look Around" and see if you don't find some meaning in them as you look forward to this past year and the new one in front of us.
I know I do.
"If you want peace then live alone
If you wanna hide then find a stage
Each a brief but perfect home
To accommodate your rage
In the midst of all my crimes
I feel lost
Or have I lost enough?
Remind me as they say
It's up to you
The things you throw away
And still you're gonna have to go and find it
You'll have to dig beneath the ground
You'll have to unearth every ugly stone
That's kept you on your own
And simply put them down
You're gonna have to look around"
