“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.
