time is too short


Never pretend

to a love

which you do not

actually feel

for love

is not ours

to command.

Alan Watts

This is more than just an adage, and happy to see you acknowledge here in the heading. Our plans fall short, out time allocation is too short, the time we enjoy is too short, and out lifspan is painfully too short, always semmingly ending on sopme measure of sorrow or loss even in a life well-lived.

That's quite an interesting audio there. Can't say I'm familiar with it Michael.

dd: Thank you!

sam: Thanks for that. BTW, the audio music is Moondog a familiar person in NY back in the day and audio from a movie. I excerpted from a mix that Joe Acheson made that a friend posted to me.
