Raybeard planted a seed in my head with his last comment. A seed of a tune that I love. A tune that inspires the simplicity of an unencumbered life. Joy comes from life itself not the material possessions that often distract us.
There’s this original that is magnificent. It’s simple, raw good talent. His timing is perfection.
Then there is this version from one of my favorite films. This too is perfection in a different way. It’s still simple but twisted and tweaked by a different artist perspective.
Today as I go to my very first post-op physical therapy appointment and then into a Dr. appointment for the work up on the other shoulder, yes it’s a problem too, I will keep this mantra in my head:
Life is the journey. Joy is in the journey. The material is just icing on the cake. I will enjoy the journey and savor it. I won’t let the little bumps on the road spoil it but let them spice it up.
