You’re off to Great Places!
You’re off and away!
You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.
You’ll look up and down streets. Look ‘em over with care.
About some you will say, “I don’t choose to go there.”
With your head full of brains and your shoes full of feet,
you’re too smart to go down any not-so-good street.
— Oh, the Places You’ll Go,Dr. Seuss
I’m afraid that some times you’ll play lonely games too.
Games you can’t win ‘cause you’ll play against you.
A concept that I need to get a grasp of. As much as I want to be with my friends in everything, as much as I want to grow alongside them, life is a challenge I need to face on my own. I can’t rely too much on the comfort of having something familiar with me all the time because the world is a world of change and surprises. If I can’t deal with that, I’d lose the game even before I could start playing.
We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.
‘Cause I have wings.
Yes, I can fly
Around the moon
And far beyond the sky
And one day soon
I know there you’ll be
One small voice in the universe
One true friend in the universe
Who believes in me

It wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living. It’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope, which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at all of life’s realities.
