Had a pretty crazy day at work today. I’m off tomorrow and wanted to have tomorrow’s work almost done so my coworker wouldn’t get stuck with it on a Friday. She’s busy enough as it is. So that means a four day weekend for me. Yay! On the other hand, it’s supposed to be hot hot hot and it’s going to be hard to muster up any desire to get out and about. I’m sure I’ll fit in some photography at some point.
Last Saturday while out with the group I came across this young couple clearly in love down at the new water feature/park on Lower Sherborne St. It’s pretty nice. Anyway, I had mixed emotions seeing these two. It was on the one hand heartwarming, but also made me feel a tad lonely. Some people go through life thinking there’s someone out there for everyone, but if you apply logic to that thought, then obviously it’s just a bunch of wishful thinking built on the same foundation that supports Santa and the Easter Bunny. It might be nice to believe but that’s about all it is. Millions of people live a life alone and die without ever finding the right someone. But you know what: given that I was once a believer too, I can tell you that you’re better off holding onto hope. You might die alone but you’ll die with the hope in your heart that around the next corner might be your soul mate. That’s gotta bet better than resigning yourself to the logic of the matter and giving up that hope. For those of us who are destine to end up alone, that hope is like a little ray of sunshine cutting through an empty room.
