sometimes you’re the bug

This is dedicated to poor Melania – too bad you hitched your lovely planet to a pathetically sad & narcissistic star.

I totally love that Michelle Obama is your inspiration though.

Thank you Dire Straits & Mark Knopfler for reminding us of our life as, sometimes,

The Bug

Well it’s a strange old game – you learn it slow
One step forward and it’s back to go
You’re standing on the throttle
You’re standing on the breaks
In the groove ’til you make a mistake

Sometimes you’re the windshield
Sometimes you’re the bug
Sometimes it all comes together baby
Sometimes you’re a fool in love
Sometimes you’re the louisville slugger
Sometimes you’re the ball
Sometimes it all comes together baby
Sometimes you’re going to lose it all

You gotta know happy – you gotta know glad
Because you’re gonna know lonely
And you’re gonna know bad
When you’re rippin’ and a ridin’
And you’re coming on strong
You start slippin’ and slidin’
And it all goes wrong because

Sometimes you’re the windshield
Sometimes you’re the bug
Sometimes it all comes together baby
Sometimes you’re a fool in love
Sometimes you’re the louisville slugger baby
Sometimes you’re the ball
Sometimes it all comes together baby
Sometimes you’re going to lose it all

One day you got the glory
One day you got none
One day you’re a diamond
And then you’re a stone
Everything can change
In the blink of an eye
So let the good times roll
Before we say goodbye, because

Sometimes you’re the windshield
Sometimes you’re the bug
Sometimes it all comes together baby
Sometimes you’re a fool in love
Sometimes you’re the louisville slugger baby
Sometimes you’re the ball
Sometimes it all comes together baby
Sometimes you’re going to lose it all.

Mark Knopfler, 1991

(This song…& walking…etc…saved my life a decade ago. love.)

&, of course, go Hillary!! – it’s your time to be the louisville slugger.

    Similar thoughts… Sometimes you’re the pigeon. And sometimes you’re the statue. Some days you get the bear. And some days the bear gets you. But there’s a favorite verse from the Bible that says, “And it came to pass…” It means that I have to remind myself in good times and in bad that things will pass. The good will fade, and the bad will appear. And then the bad will fade, and the good will appear. It’s our job to make sure the good lasts longer than the bad. To do that, we have to develop optimism and a positive vision. And maybe a thicker skin.
