1.29.12 / 6:50 am, Colorado Springs *
First light of the first day of a new week. Brisk weather is here, but no storybook white winter here at 6,500 feet above breath-ability.
With a new day, a new week comes new opportunities to discover, learn, create, assist, contribute, complete, begin . . .
Can we do all those in just a week, or even in a day.
We can each bring light, color, and (like the weather here) add our own brisk insights and inventive individuality.
The world is a different place with you in it. The only question now is, How different will it be a week from now because of the choices you make, the actions you take.
Start today with a new picture or piece of art on the wall of your work space. Turn your desk, drawing table, reading chair to face the window—the view. (Do not face the door, the next distraction.)
Don't wait for life to happen to you. Be a catalyst, a cause, not merely a reaction.
You can be the big bang in your universe.
Make a difference, today. The world needs you.
• then there's this ...
On this day, 30 January, in 1969 was the last time the Beatles played together. It was a live concert on the roof of the ASpple Records building in London. Also today, happy birthday, Gene Hackman (1930).
