What good is sitting alone in your room?

Yes, it's gloomy.  Today will likely be much cooler than it has been in several weeks and rain is in the forecast for tonight (here in San Francisco, that is).  This therefore isn't one of those wonderful change the world days we normally write about here then.  Or is it?

To quote a line from that great musical Cabaret, "What good is sitting alone in your room?" It really doesn't matter how anything is.  Should we let the weather shape our day?  Of course not!  It's a new day, and it's our day. We shape it. We decide if it will be good by our actions.  We should be ready to experience whatever is out there and to rejoice in all the goodness.  Yes, just like the song says "Life is a cabaret."  Don't let it be shaped by the temperature any more than by someone else's ignorance or fear or by how much money you have in your pocket.  We can live life to its fullest ANY day.  We can change the world ANY day.

Come - hear the music play!
