The brilliance of John Lennon

John Lennon had occasional flashes of truly profound insight, intermingled with juvenile politics, asinine philosophy, and very, very good drugs. In particular, his lyric “life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans” stands out to me – I think that it captures the essence of human fragility before the might of providence and fortune. A lesson I take from this is not to wait to be “ready” – one can never be ready for the myriad twists and turns which will come our way.

At its best, life is a blind leap into the unknown, and on a good day, one has companionship while making the leap.
