Bruce Springsteen sang of “Glory Days,” ironically when we were still in high school. And for me, that seems about right. To keep it there. I can’t say that I have once really looked back and thought those were the best days of my life. Not because they were bad, but because I want to enjoy the time I’m in. Right now.
She emailed me this morning. Said she walked into her friend’s house, and there was my bluebird. Hanging on the wall. And just like that, the three of us, who had gone to high school together, were all connected. Maybe for the first time. I know these two “girls” now as women of the world (maybe still with young girls’ hearts), and with all apologies to Bruce, what could be more glorious than that?
To let people become. To allow them to learn and grow…find their own happiness. Find the life they love…and then see them, in all their glory, in every shade of blue, nothing could make me happier.
This is the time. Right here. Right now. “I wink with a young girl’s eye.”
