Don't close your eyes

Sad this morning, out of the blue. Not overwhelmingly or debilitatingly so; just that subtle sense that something's wrong, missing, lost.

Just as I wrote that, a song came on the radio that may have been exactly what I needed to hear.

Switchfoot, "This Is Your Life"
Yesterday is a wrinkle on your forehead
Yesterday is a promise that you've broken
Don't close your eyes
Don't close your eyes

This is your life and today is all you've got now
And today is all you'll ever have
Don't close your eyes
Don't close your eyes

This is your life
Are you who you want to be?
This is your life
Are you who you want to be?
This is your life
Is it everything you've dreamed it would be?
When the world was younger
and you had everything to lose

Don't close your eyes
Don't close your eyes

Yesterday is a kid in the corner
Yesterday is dead and over

This is your life
Are you who you want to be?
This is your life
Are you who you want to be?
This is your life
is it everything you've dreamed it would be?
when the world was younger
and you had everything to lose

Don't close your eyes
Don't close your eyes


Walter and Nancy are coming over this afternoon. It's been ages since I just sat and talked with them awhile. This evening I have at least three sets of plans competing with one another. Laundry needs to fit in somewhere, too.
