“Life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans.”; John Lennon and Yoko Ono – “Beautiful Boy”
When I was in graduate school, my friend Heidi asked me, “what’s that thing you’re always saying about life? Where’s that from.” She went away with a thoughtful look. She ended up marrying her secret boyfriend. I don’t think she finished her PhD. The thing is, people are always planning for after school, for after retirement, for what their next job will be. Meanwhile, they have an on-going life that needs to be led.
Planning is good, yes, but live the life you have at the moment. Don’t wait to travel, don’t wait to start a hobby, don’t wait to find a life. That’s my thing.
This question is a day late. For on 6 July, 1957, 60 years ago, Paul and John met. (I know this, because my FB feed subscribes to BBC 6. So should you.) Anyway, WOW! What a thing to know.
