Spring Is Here

 music: Richard Rodgers words: Lorenz Hart

Once there was a thing called spring
When the world was writing verses like yours and mine

All the lads and girls would sing
When we sat at little tables and drank May wine

Now April, May and June
Are sadly out of tune

Life has stuck a pin in the boat

Spring is here
Why doesn’t my heart go dancing?

Spring is here
Why isn’t the waltz entrancing?

No desire
No ambition leads me
Maybe it’s because nobody needs me

Spring is here
Why doesn’t the breeze delight me?
Stars appear
Why doesn’t the night invite me?

Maybe it’s because nobody loves me
Spring is here, I hear

The weight of one-off life

What gives life an impotant meaning is that life in this world is only once, that our life is irreversible, and that the act of making life fulfilled also makes it live. All actions that you do not have to be redone.

But it’s not just that each person’s life is a one-time thing. The fact that one day, one hour, one hour, and one moment at a time only gives great weight to our lives.

Achieve a meaningful life in distress

We can make life meaningful in many ways. By acting, loving, and finally suffering.

By suffering, you mean how you behave and behave in the face of various life possibilities, even if they are constrained and you are unable to realize value through action and love.

Or how to take the pain of being constrained, in all of these ways, we can still deliver value.

Experience makes life meaningful

Activities are not the only things that can make life meaningful.

Not only as an acting being, but also as a loving one, by loving and devoting beautiful things, great things, and good things, we can meet the various needs of our lives.

There is no need to explain the fact that beauty experiences can make life meaningful.

Make life meaningful in your spare time

Occupational work is not the only place where activities can make your life meaningful. Is it true that only professional work makes life meaningful?

The work of many people can be mechanical as well as pointless.

They lament and complain about the pointlessness of their labor. No wonder.

Only in the leisure time of an insignificant amount, the lives of these people are formed into meaningful things and filled with individual and human meanings.

Those who have abundant leisure have a great opportunity to make their lives meaningful.

Answer the questions that life poses

It is wrong from the beginning that we ask, “Is it meaningful to live?” We should not ask what it means to live. It’s because life asks and raises our questions.

We are being questioned.

We must answer the questions that life always asks, the questions of life. It is the existence that must answer. Living itself is nothing but a question.

We all live to answer. And that is to take responsibility for being alive.

Misty  

music Erroll Garner  words Johnny Burke

Look at me,
I’m as helpless as a kitten up a tree;
And I feel like I’m clingin’ to a cloud
I can’t understand
I get misty, just holding your hand

Walk my way
And a thousand violins begin to play
Or it might be the sound of your hello
That music I hear
I get misty, the moment you’re near

Can’t you see that you’re leading me on?
And it’s just what I want you to do
Don’t you notice how hopelessly I’m lost
That’s why I’m following you

On my own
Would I wander through this wonderland alone

Never knowing my right foot from my left
My hat from my glove
I’m too misty, and too much in love

Too misty
And too much in love
