#42: October 16, 2010 - Fela Jams

#42: October 16, 2010

BE HAPPY. OR NOT.

Folks - I first heard those words on a cassette copy of Devo's 'Now It Can Be Told' that I picked up in great record store in Bondi Junction, Sydney, Australia in 1997. I've come to understand it as - we have a choice. In all situations, we have a choice. I'm hesitant to preach in a forum such as this - comes off as a little too pontificating for my liking - but after the week I've just had...well, here I am. So, be happy, or not, and dig the jams. Life get shorter every day and tempus sure does fugit. gareth

You've got a good point, Gareth. You can't always choose your situation, but you sure can choose what you're going to do about it.

I hope things are better for you this week, G.
