Woke up this morning and after traipsing through the dreams, urged myself, come on, get up. Seize the day.
Not uncommon words. But my brain then latched on to other words, “One more time around might do it.”
I chased the threads while I did morning business, finally realizing that Soundgarden’s song, “The Day I Tried to Live” (1994), was trying to break through.
Singing, one more time around might do it
One more time around might make it
One more time around might do it
One more time around I might make it
The day I tried to live, yeah

How many times have I told myself, one more time might do it over different projects and efforts over my lifetime.
I don’t usually have such trouble getting out of bed. Cats generally don’t permit such self-absorbed dawdling.
I think it’s just a sign of the times.
