No matter what happens tomorrow
"No matter what happens tomorrow, or for the rest of my life i'm happy now, because I love you."
~~ GROUNDHOG DAY (1993)
this is a Phil (Bill Murray) quote from the movie. LOL! i actually like it, it says to me that it is important to live the moment and enjoy the good things that are happening right now.
its a powerful philosophy, easier said than done.
the opposing view is the one held by another great flick: Crimes and Misdemeanors (by Woody Allen): the Universe cares not for what we do or how we feel. i find that view overwhelming.
funny. today i received news that a woman i loved and lived with for five years has passed away. actually she passed away four years ago at the ripe young age of forty-five, though i was unaware until today.
i had not seen her since 1992 so i don't understand why i feel like i have been kicked in the gut.
i've been thinking . . . i am grateful for the time we were together, though i am saddened because i will never see her again. i would have liked to let her know that she was someone special to me, at the least, one last time.
