Stories from my Past: I can see clearly now

I used to be involved in theatre. It is fun to look at different perspectives and its a pretty social activity. Anyway, we had early morning rehearsal at a town about 45 minutes away.

It looked better than this. I can’t find anything comparable.

So I got up early in the morning and was driving there. It was a beautiful dark night and the sky was framed with mountains in the background. As I was driving the song “I can see clearly now” by Jimmy Cliff came on the radio as the sun was rising. I clearly remember that moment even though it’s probably been 15 years. The sun was a brilliant orange mixture of light and I stopped the car to take a look. Sometimes in your life you have a moment where it’s not clear the boundaries of who you are as a person and the rest of the world are. I think in love most have an opportunity to feel it, perhaps also in loving children or animals. However even without relationships you can feel the connection to life if you are open to it. Life has a way of showing you a beauty and truth you can’t imagine with our small minds.
