On a high

Love this song and it pretty much sums up how I feel today. Yes, my back is still hurting and my car's bumper has yet to be looked to. I also have no real social life (outside of work and school) and live with a roommate, my three cats, her cat and two dogs in a verrrrrrrrry small house, but I am alive, the sky is gray with the delicious chill of autumn in the air and I have a wonderful family which I love dearly.

How can I not be happy when I truly have so much going for me? Its like this tune I had in my head yesterday from Morrissey where, essentially, it doesn't matter what all is going on around you and "Now My Heart is Full".

Its a nice feeling.

Duncan Sheik "On a High"

I'm on a high, I'm on a high
There's nothing more to it
We are the sea and the sky
And the blue that runs through it

And there are some who say there are
So many things I need
So I run or I fight and I crawl or I scream and I bleed I bleed, I bleed

(Chorus)
Well it's a lie, it's a lie-don't you believe it
If you're fine, then you're fine-it's all how you see it
Oh, there will never be no conspiracy of happiness
I'm on a high, on a high There's nothing more to it

I have the sun, it's a star
Why should I refuse it?
And there are so many reasons
I could give you why I should be down
There's not enough money or time and my love
You're not around Around, around

(Chorus)
You're alive, you're alive-what else could you give me
You are fine, you are fine-nothing's worth feeling
Oh, there never will be no conspiracy of happiness

I'm on a high, on a high
You are the sea and the sky
I'm on a high, I'm on high I'm on a high

Honey,
Yes, its true family can be the best and were lucky to be one family that can claim this. Love, DAD

I too do not have enough social life! Though I have heard from the same from individuals who seemed to me to have incredible social lives and have to wonder if life is so busy that we don't all feel that way from time to time (or more!).

I like your attitude. It reminds me of the words of Samuel Johnson...

"The fountain of content must spring up in the mind, and he who hath so little knowledge of human nature as to seek happiness by changing anything but his own disposition, will waste his life in fruitless efforts and multiply the greif he proposes to remove."

Take care Shawna! :D
