there are decades when
nothing happens, there are weeks
when decades happen
I am quoting Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov or as he was better known, Vladimir Lenin.
Later on I will also be quoting Marx.
ANYWAY . . .
I have aged 10 years in the couple of months.
I say that as the last couple of months have lasted 10 years.
Or is it that the last couple of months seem like one long day.
If it has been one long day, a month of these days would be years long.
Thirty days hath September,
April, June, and November,
all the rest have thirty-one
Except for April which has 8000
Groucho Marx once said, “My favorite poem is the one that starts ‘Thirty Days Hath September…’ because it actually means something“
I have no idea what he would say about any of this but I am sure it would be funny.
Most likely he would have said, “It’s quitting time in New York.”
Mr. Groucho did say “I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.“
That would suit me fine right now.
If I listen to Mr. Marx and Mr. Lenin, and if I have just that one day, today.
Then I am going to be happy in it.
That that day is lasting forever is not such a bad thing.
