Don't Wait 'Til Too Late

I recently saw a wonderful bit by the great Alan Watts. In essence, he said, the point of a piece of music is not the finale. If it were, then he who conducts the fastest would be considered the best conductor!

No, the point of a piece of music is the enjoyment throughout.

But in Kindergarten, we can't wait for first grade, and so on through our school years. Then university, the first job, the bigger house and car and so on. We spend all our lives pursuing "success."

Is that the point?

Hear the words of the clever French novelist Colette (author of Gigi, among others): "What a wonderful life I've had. I only wish I had realized it sooner."

Realize it now. Don't wait 'til too late.

You'll be happier.
