Where would you go?

Posted: March 4, 2013 in Uncategorized

I was watching television the other night with my favorite person in the world. The Television show was one of the cookie cutter police dramas, we usually do not watch these shows but this one the two of us have an affinity for. The victim in the show was a scientist who was working on mastering time travel.

Many of us, because of the nature of the concept of time, scoff at time travel, but we still ask ourselves some questions about it. Where or when would you go? If you could travel to any time where would you go?

I thought about this for most of the day, well on and off for most of the day, and I came up with now. I like now. Right now as I am writing this I am content and if I am not I make changes to become content. I have truly enjoyed all of my life, the ups and downs and I wouldn’t want to change it. I thought about going back in time to meet some of my idols like, Mark Twain, Jesus, Budha and Oscar Wilde but I fear disappointment. I know them from now the shadows of then and I like the now heroes. There was a really cool rock song by Van Halen, called right now. The line I love in that song is the one where they sing “Catch that magic moment, do it Right here and now”. 

This is that magic moment right now and this is where we all should be and where we all are and where I want to be.

Don’t wanna wait til tomorrow,
Why put it off another day?
One more walk through problems,
Built up, and stand in our way ,ah
One step ahead, one step behind me
Now you gotta run to get even
Make future plans, don’t dream about yesterday, hey
C’mon turn, turn this thing around
Right now, hey
It’s your tomorrow
Right now,
C’mon,it’s everything
Right now,
Catch a magic moment, do it
Right here and now
It means everything
Miss the beat, you lose the rhythm,
And nothing falls into place, no
Only missed by a fraction,
Slipped a little off your pace, oh,
The more things you get, the more you want,
Just trade in one for the other,
Workin so hard, to make it easier, whoa,
Got to turn, c’mon turn this thing around
Right now, hey
It’s your tomorrow
Right now,
C’mon, it’s everything
Right now,
Catch that magic moment, do it
Right here and now
It means everything
It’s enlightened me, right now
What are you waitin for
Oh, yeah, right now
(solo)
Right now, hey
It’s your tomorrow
Right now,
C’mon, it’s everything
Right now,
Catch that magic moment, and do it right,
Right now
Right now, oh, right now
It’s what’s happening?
Right here and now
Right now
It’s right now
Oh,
Tell me, what are you waiting for
Turn this thing around

Peace
