the secret o’ life…

… is enjoying the passage of time.
Any fool can do it.
There ain’t nothing to it.
Nobody knows how we got to the top of the hill, but since were on our way down we might as well enjoy the ride.

The secret of love is in opening up your heart.
It’s okay to feel afraid, but don’t let that stand in your way.
‘Cause anyone knows that love is the only road.
And since were only here for a while, we might as well show some style.
Give us a smile.

Isn’t it a lovely ride?
Sliding down.
Gliding down.
Try not to try too hard.
It’s just a lovely ride.

Now the thing about time is that time isn’t really real.
It’s just your point of view.
How does it feel for you?
Einstein said he could never understand it all.
Planets spinning through space
The smile upon your face.
Welcome to the human race.

Some kind of lovely ride.
I’ll be sliding down.
I’ll be gliding down.
Try not to try too hard.
It’s just a lovely ride.

Isn’t it a lovely ride?
Sliding down.
Gliding down.
Try not to try too hard.
It’s just a lovely ride.

Now the secret of life is enjoying the passage of time.

So many human icons are passing on these days.

It just felt right to celebrate one while he’s still here.   Thanks, James Taylor.

And thanks to all who have their own Secret o’ Life.   What’s yours?
