318 – Gracias A La Vida

I live a very privileged life, here in the heart of Europe, in a rich, peaceful place … having been born here and not where all the struggle is, without any contribution of my own, just so …

We are fantastic creatures, always able to adjust to the circumstances, always adapting, always feeling the small differences, always thriving to improve, even if everything is so perfect … and in doing so we tend to forget what it is all about. The relative hides the absolute, and we have the impertinence to be able to feel unhappy in all our abundance. Yes, it’s OK, it’s almost perfect, but … just a tiny bit …

I feel I should say thanks to life.

Gracias a la vida” in the version by Joan Baez, a track from her 1974 album of the same name is the Song of the Day.

  1. Couldn’t agree more. From time to time we should just stop and acknowledge how privledged we are. Gives a new (and highly necessary) perspective on a lot of our luxury problems…
