Possibility can be forever, whatever happens. Because, in life, one thinks, what if? What if makes one keep on going, thinking, that life is the possibility that makes other possibilities. It’s just a fact of life. That without movement there wouldn’t be a life to live. Yet in stillness, to be at peace, and the possibility to revitalize. Life may not be limitless, but it may be more like endless.


Opportunities come and go, with variable success at grasping them for what they could be worth. Some opportunities can go into the symbolic ethereal mist, to disappear, never to resurface again, never to have the opportunity to have that particular opportunity again. Maybe it was a missed opportunity, or one used wisely or poorly. Whatever one had done with it, for win or loss, to build upon it, or sinks with mishandling. Then another one comes along and one forgets the ones that pass into oblivion or legend. There is always another.

Opportunities come, what did I do with them? Sometimes with guilt that it wasn’t completed, or flawed, or taken to the ideal, in any area of opportunity: work, play, hobby, relationships, human decency, being a good person despite the pressures from inside and out. A flawed life but which is viewed from the eye of perfection, somehow tainted by the eye of perfection, and not seeing the good that was possibly done, but with the possibility to move onward and upward.

The only television I sit down and watch, apart from the occasional sports game, is the news. So much of it these days is especially bad news, but some would say I am getting older, so I just see it that way, and with that I would not agree. One should see what’s happening in Europe, the UK, and especially the United States of America, and the Middle East, and almost everywhere else for that matter. I have found news about the United States especially acerbating. Therefore, I decided to switch off the television for a month or longer. In times like these, I need the simple pleasures to keep positive. In my ‘island’ away from the world, it only makes sense to maintain its peacefulness and not let the world in. But I felt it: what is happening throughout the world is terrible indeed. For me, I have a choice to switch off from it all for a while. And that I am doing. I have found the break very soothing so far. My alarm clock is set for January. Wake me up then. I will sleep through the alarm clock.
