Ahhhh, if we can only accept that the unknown outcome, the unanswered question, the mystery of the future is an awesome gift. Do we really want to know? I don't. I would have no reason to get up in the morning. I do count on the sun rising in the east, but seriously, spreadsheets with macros - all the projections, predictions and analysis? No thank you! After all, what we see right now, what we hold in our hands and feel at this moment is all we can know for sure and it is very, very precious because of that. I am as easily caught up in the past and future as the next person, but my new mantra is "Greet each moment with wonder."
Quick! Name a song that makes you feel 17 again. Or one that reminds you of your first love or first broken heart. Easy, right?

But everyone has that one song (or more). Because of this lovely phenomenon, YouTube can be a very, very dangerous site for us to visit. But, just to encourage you to fall back into the time capsule of music, here is a link: youtu.be/IK1XIMsTgmM ENJOY!
