“Carpe diem! Seize the day! Rejoice while you are alive; enjoy the day; live life to the fullest; make the most of what you have. It is later than you think.”
Seriously good advice for all of us. Especially for me during the second half of my stay-cation.
Now, Paul Simon is a commie and a friend of Woodie Allen but that commie can really write a good lyric.
“And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said, the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls
And whispered in the sounds of silence”
Excerpt from “The Sounds of Silence” by Paul Simon
