Keeping going

We find ourselves part of ‘history in the making’ – a part of these [suffering] times. How to get through it? I remember when I was about 17 and cross-country running. There was one demanding stretch of road - that long top road before the descent down the grass clumps of the hill. I recall the feeling. I wouldn’t have known Beckett’s: “You must go on. I can’t go on. I’ll go on,” but it fits. Being in-house is beginning to have that feel to it. There’s plenty of good advice to help us. If I was young I’d ask: “what do I [actually] want to do with my life?” In my age the question that fires me up and keeps me going is: “what do I want to do: how do I want to live this day?”
