any day now

Passing the open doors of a very-early-morning-opened coffee shop and cafe, downhill on Birch Street toward the tail end of my walk, I recognized floating out onto the sidewalk the melody to the song “Alfie”, a lovely Bacharach/David creation. This line of the song slipped into my head – “Without true love we just exist, Alfie.” I arrived back to this room, did some stuff, then opened and devoted myself to Dionne Warwick’s version. Which offered another line for a Monday’s early consideration – “When you walk, let your heart lead the way.”

That’s pretty much it. The “we just exist” sentiment is open to whatever things open to. I think there’s lots of ways to feel, and be, a true love – love the world – love the day. Perhaps save the planet. Romance coming in all shapes and sizes, colors and fragrances. Invitations and parties.

“You’ll find love any day.” The song says that too.
