The Three Questions

This is a wonderful children’s book written by Jon Muth based upon the writing of Leo Tolstoy. The three question are : When is the best time to do things? Who is the most important one? What is the right thing to do?”
It seems to me…when life gets just a bit disconnected or off center, the right person, right song, right memory just presents itself when you need it most. I.LOVE.THAT. Serendipity, you know?
I think that is why I am so hung up on this Willie Nelson song, Maria Shut Up and Kiss Me. What in the world would it be about that song? Other than the first verse, perhaps…
“That’s my favorite part
Rewind my life on
When my world got dark
And you turned my light on
I’ve watched it for hours and hours again in my head, I did.”
Quite comforting to figure these kind of things out…turns out I do not secretly want Maria to shut up and kiss me. Whatever:)
But rather, the reminder of how the right thing/person/song/photo at the right moment – THAT is the good stuff right there.
Good stuff indeed.
