As I look ahead at what's coming down the pike, the future is too unknown to really make a statement about. I had 3 or 4 "up and at 'em" "do the right thing" inspirational songs I was picking and choosing from for the closer to this trilogy, and they all felt a little false to me.
We all want to stay optimistic about what lay in store for us, but any song I had picked was too pointed...and what the hell do I know anyhow?
I don't think you can lay down a really specific path or plan for yourself...the world changes too fast now to plan that far ahead. I think all we can do is to always do what we think is right as we move on, hone our abilities so we're prepared to use them and watch for those opportunities when they arise.
The ultimate future? Well, whether you're one of the billions of superstitious natives on this planet hoping to be rewarded in an afterlife of harps and wings and fluffy clouds, or an evangelical agnostic like myself who believes this ain't no dress rehearsal and we should strive for our own paradise on Earth...there is "Heaven". Here's me doing a Loudon Wainwright III song of the same name.
Be careful out there. Have fun. Take it easy...but take it.
