.... is a great day!
It's my favourite saying, that'n. "Every day that I wake up alive is a great day!" I base my approach to life on it, and it's something which has come to mind a few times lately, reading stuff posted in this section. People wondering if being older makes them happier or sadder. People wondering if riding cycles is gonna make them live to 100 rather than 80. All sorts of stuff that I generally never even bother thinking about. I just wake up in the morning and think "Bewdy! Another day!"
I'm far from unique in thinking that way, of course. Plenty of people around who are pretty much at peace with themselves and their world. And I think a combination of circumstances has left me in a position where I fall into that way of thinking a bit more easily than most. Hell. In the 'Indigenous Australian' world of Mrs. CW (which has been my world too since I was a very young man) average life expectancy is only around 50 years. That's the backdrop to my life. We've already seen off a hefty portion of our 'contemporaries'.
I wake up in the morning, and no matter what the cares, concerns and issues of the day might be they're all really just 'little things'. The 'big thing' is that I've got another day to live through and enjoy.
That's done. I babbled.
Make what you will of the mysteries of Life, The Universe and Everything. I'm going for a ride!
