Susan’s Playlists Sept 9 to 12, 2013: The Opposite of Good

Prayer-Flags-of-9-11-315x157“Instructions for living a life.
Pay attention.
Be astonished.
Tell about it.”
― Mary Oliver

If I believed in coincidences, it would be a remarkable one that
– I was thinking of Mary Oliver’s poem, Wild Geese
– when I wrote this week’s post
– and that it just happened to be the week of her 78th birthday
– which also just happens to be the anniversary of September 11 (two powerful ones: Bryan Adams’ video shot in NYC on Sept 7 2001 and 9/11 Prayer Flags
But then, I don’t believe in coincidences.  So I guess it was just a remarkable week.

The opposite of good isn’t bad. The opposite of good is real. Say it over and over. Then, for fun, say it like Samuel L. Jackson.

Have fun. Dance on.
