It's Time to Move On

Friday, February 02, 2018
My daughter, Juniper, told me tonight about a quote, "Stop looking for happiness in the same place you lost it", and I was a little blown away.  I hadn't heard this one before, but it is a new favorite.  If I can say something from my heart right now, it would be that my children are my greatest teachers. 

Juniper, at Limelight in Sellwood, for an after-school snack.

This quote reminds me of the lyrics of the late Tom Petty:

Time to Move On, by Tom Petty
 
It's time to move on, time to get going
What lies ahead, I have no way of knowing
But under my feet, baby, grass is growing
It's time to move on, it's time to get going
Broken skyline, movin' through the airport
She's an honest defector
Conscientious objector
Now her own protector
Broken skyline, which way to love land
Which way to something better
Which way to forgiveness
Which way do I go
It's time to move on, time to get going
What lies ahead, I have no way of knowing
But under my feet, baby, grass is growing
It's time to move on, it's time to get going
Sometime later, getting the words wrong
Wasting the meaning and losing the rhyme
Nauseous adrenalin
Like breakin' up a dogfight
Like a deer in the headlights
Frozen in real time
I'm losing my mind
It's time to move on, time to get going
What lies ahead, I have no way of knowing
But under my feet, baby, grass is growing
It's time to move on, it's time to get going


Time to stop barking up the same tree, time to open up to new sources of happiness.  Time to move on, time to get going.
