Going To the Grave – Guest Post by Karl Moore

I woke up in a panic. 😨

I'd spent the last few weeks traveling across the USA, and for a few moments, I had no idea where I was.

I stared around the room. Big glass windows. Too much sun. β˜€οΈ

The hotel room looked larger than most.

Was this still Hollywood? But the layout… different…

And… this wasn't even a bed… I was asleep on a big white sofa…

This was MY sofa. I must… I must be back home in Manchester. 🏠

I must've passed out as soon as I returned.

My heart was racing. I wiped the sweat from my forehead, and sat up, blinking into space.

And ringing through my head, over and over, was one phrase that I'd read on the plane going home. ✈️

They were the words of Henry David Thoreau.

“Most men lead lives of quiet desperation, and go to the grave with the song still in them.”

With the song still in them. 🎢⚰️

Slowly, throughout that day, I recovered. My pulse calmed. My tea levels increased. Jet-lagged life resumed. But the phrase continued to haunt.

Most people “go to the grave with the song still in them.”

That day, I made the decision that I would not be one of those men. πŸ™…β€β™‚οΈ

And I suggest you make that same decision too. SOON.
