Secret O’ Life – 2

Another great line from James Taylor’s song, Secret O’ Life:

“Nobody knows how we got to the top of the hill.  But since we’re on our way down, we might as well enjoy the ride.”

I am capable of believing, convincing myself, that my presence on the hillat “the top of the hill” is a function of my own efforts, though anyone with half (or less of) a brain can recognize that belief as pure folly.  Whatever my position may be on the slope of the hill, it is at least half chance, with much debt to others.  But that only support’s the point – “since we’re on our way down,” and we are all on our way down, “we might as well enjoy the ride” Indeed! Ang songs like this provide a good background playlist.
