Notes to Myself

(My struggle to become a person)
By Hugh Prather
Contributed by Bill Hatt

If I had only…

Forgotten future greatness

And looked at the green things and the buildings

And reached out to those around me

And smelled the air

And ignored the forms and the self-styled obligations

And heard the rain on the roof

And put my arms around my wife

… and it’s not too late.
