hindsight is 20 20

I saw this on a blog

“may you have the hindsight to know where you’ve been, the foresight to see where you’re going and the insight to know when you’re going too far…”

Nice words I thought.

It amazes me how I have gone so far in life.
And how I have gotten so much in life.
I have tasted the sweetest bits, I have suffered the deeper pains.
I think as I move forward that I have learned what I need, only to be reminded that I have hardly learned enough.

I have met some of the most beautiful people
and seen some of the worst in human kind.
I use to wake up thinking today is just the beginning
That today I will start new.
I still think that way, I am so glad I do.

I have always thought of myself as a insightful person, to a degree, we all have our faults.
I thought what I wanted in life, what I desired most, what made the earth shake below my feet, only existed in dreams, in wishes and in hopes.

because I thought I knew, I knew what was real and what was not.

I believe I have hindsight to see what’s past, to have foresight into my future and the insight to know when I have gone to far.

But then ……….YOU.

WOW my hindsight evaporated, I didn’t see you coming.

The most welcome of surprises.

You have given me new hindsight, foresight and most definitely insight.

You are the best sight I know.

And that is OKAY by me.

life in reels

I work on movies for a living.

Really that’s what I do.

When I work on a movie it comes to me in 15 to 20 min. Reels.

That’s how I see the film.

That’s how I relate to the film.

15 to 20 min. Reels

The last few days I have been sick.

A really awful chest cold.

Every night I wake up with a horrible hacking cough.

And every night I think to myself that I am only in Reel 1.

And in some strange way I suppose that I am

comforted by the thought that I have 4 more Reels of hacking to go.


I hate being sick.
