Image! Image, image, image...

As Judas tried explaining to Jesus, that Precious Ointment could've been sold to feed the poor, and as Jesus explained to Judas, the poor is one reality, Jesus is another reality, there are many realities out there and in here, and you gotta attend to the real right-at-hand reality. That sounds like a version of carpe diem! Right now my reality is feeling lost, shattered and powerless.

Probably many or most of you remember Steve Winwood's Higher Love (in Back in the High Life, 1986)? From his 1980 Arc of a Diver, I love this Steve Winwood song, and sometimes recall frequently anticipating its opening French horn (I think that's the instrument) riff on the car radio.

While You See a Chance | Winwood and Jennings

Steve Winwood dot com

Stand up in a clear blue morning until you see what can be
Alone in a cold day dawning, are you still free? Can you be?
When some cold tomorrow finds you, when some sad old dream reminds you
How the endless road unwinds you

While you see a chance take it, find romance fake it
Because it's all on you

Don't you know by now no one gives you anything
Don't you wonder how you keep on moving one more day your way

When there's no one left to leave you, even you don't quite believe you
That's when nothing can deceive you

Stand up in a clear blue morning until you see what can be
Alone in a cold day dawning, are you still free? Can you be?
And that old gray wind is blowing and there's nothing left worth knowing
And it's time you should be going
