Monday Morning Blues; Everybody Oughta Make A Change

Sleepy John Estes • Everybody Ought'a Make A Change

"Everybody, they ought to change sometime,
Because sooner or later
We have to go down in that lonesome ground."

Buddha put it only slightly differently...

"Then the Blessed One, picking up a tiny bit of dust with the tip of his fingernail, said to the monk, "There isn't even this much form that is constant, lasting, eternal, not subject to change, that will stay just as it is as long as eternity."

Change has been presenting itself in heavy doses lately, and I've spent the last couple weeks considering in which ways I have or haven't been responding skillfully, the only change I really have much influence over.
