We were at Jacksons Point tonight – the Lakeside site – for the Wednesday evening program. The music was superb, and I really enjoyed seeing some “old” friends. I was asked…the tone being a bit cynical, “I have to be here but what are you doing here?”
Truth be told – I wanted to be there. I wanted to take in the evening, to hear some good music to be with good friends. Why not be there?
I’m a bit surprised at times – perhaps I should not be but I am at the way in which people view the good things of life. They look at the evening and see time wasted. I see time invested. They see a difficult journey, I see the adventure. They see “the same old song”, I see a reminder of a classic.
I shouldn’t be surprised but I am.
Tomorrow you and I are going to run into circumstances that perhaps we didn’t really want. Time wasted or invested?
Will you be surprised?
