The Boy and the Starfish

A man was walking along a deserted beach at sunset.
As he walked he could see a young boy in the distance, as he drew nearer he noticed that the boy
kept bending down, picking something up and throwing it into the water.
Time and again he kept hurling things into the ocean.
As the man approached even closer, he was able to see that the boy was picking up starfish that had been washed up on the beach and, one at a time he was throwing them back into the water.
The man asked the boy what he was doing, the boy replied,
"I am throwing these washed up starfish back into the ocean, or else they will die through lack of oxygen. "But", said the man, "You can't possibly save them all, there are thousands on this beach, and this must be happening on hundreds of beaches along the coast. You can't possibly make a difference."
The boy looked down, frowning for a moment; then bent down to pick up another starfish, smiling as he threw it back into the sea. He replied,
"I made a huge difference to that one!"

idag, imorgon, och sedan då?

en dag vi väntat på, en dag vi inte längtat efter...
en dag då saker och ting förändras...
en dag då saker och ting kanske tar en riktning som man inte alls vill

idag är en dag bland många andra, för vissa är det bara måndag,
en grå.dyster.och kall måndag...

Idag kommer inte att gå till historien på något sätt [förmodligen]
men den kommer innebära att jag måste förändra mångt och mycket, mot min vilja, trots att jag inte vill

"Still don't know what I was waiting for
And my time was running wild
A million dead-end streets and
Every time I thought I'd got it made
It seemed the taste was not so sweet
So I turned myself to face me
But I´ve never caught a glimpse
Of how the others must see the faker
I´m much too fast to take that test"

[David Bowie "Changes"]

Not really sure how to feel about it

....the reason I hold on Oohh cause I need this hole gone
Funny you're the broken one but I'm the only one who needed saving
Cause when you never see the light it's hard to know which one of us is caving

some days are harder than others

Those days are gone, now the memories are on the wall
I hear the sounds from the places where I was born....

Don’t you worry, don’t you worry now
See heaven’s got a plan for you
