It's coming to almost the end of the first half of 2009.
I've had a few conversations with a few people, with the remark,"oh, how I wish this year was over. 2009 being annus horribils etc".
Jerry Maguire remains one of my favourite movies, not because of Tom Cruise (although I did name my eldest son after his character in the Mission Impossible franchise), but because of the interjections between scenes from Dicky Fox.
Possibly the best scene is when he says,
"I love the mornings! I clap my hands every morning and say, 'This is gonna be a great day!'
Well, people, if you hate your life so much, here's something for you to ponder.
Every morning is a fresh beginning.
Every day is the world made NEW.
Today is a NEW day.
Today is my world made NEW.
I have lived all my life up to this moment, to come to this day.
This moment, this day, is as good as any moment in all eternity.
I shall make of this day, each moment of this day, a heaven on earth.
This is MY day of opportunity.
