Still Living!

By Steve Wickham

To understand that we exist at the outer-most cusp of time - whilst that is indeed true, for tomorrow it mightn't be so - is blessing like nothing else in this world.

As if surfing the wave of physical existence, which is more than can be said for millions of others who've already passed, there's the opportunity we have at history. We're making it now.

Yet, before we plunge into the celebration that's the breathing, gasping life we must reflect on those who've not got it so good right now - they're all around us...

First, Thoughts of Those Gone - Paying Homage to Their Memory.

This is no blight on those who've gone. We can think of them, and of those who mourn for a loss. That fact merely inspires people to live all the more, or it should - that's the theory, isn't it? No matter, it is still okay to miss them terribly!

What a confusing mess this place is; love of life that remains, yet a squalid sorrow that hangs in defiant listlessness. Or perhaps we don't even want to be here right now?.

And then to 'celebrate' that we're still's almost an insult to their memory. Whether it's 'what they would've wanted' or not is beside the point. The emotions felt by those left behind are surprising at their source and impact. So unexpected. That's grief.

Acceptance is a level playing field of the soul - you will get there.

Then, The Fact of 'Life' Comprising Purpose and Meaning — NOW.

Not a second wasted, not one expired prematurely. And, yet, they're all evaporating as we breathe them out.

'Still living' is a magnificent reality that will waste to nothingness soon enough.
If that is not purpose and meaning enough I don't know what is. Why do we need an excuse to make the most of our moments? And this is nothing about achievement if not contentment.

As we reflect over our recent days and use these reflections to plan for our immediate futures there's a strange fact reconciled. Moments of history are being written by our every thought and act.

'Still living' is the tape ON RECORD - in the studio and ON AIR - and the world watching on with baited breath for our next move.

'Still living' can be likened to making differences whilst there is still time; not the least of which in our relationships and on our goals. Those lands lay captive upon the actions of history-making open to each of us.

'Still living' as a concept for the future is making life count - even the wasted moments for which we're all entitled.
