Now I am in my 50’s, and I am older, I have more to remember.
This is worth remembering.
I remembered to remember what I have to remember at a bus stop in the middle of Newcastle last week.
One evening at about 6 o’clock.
I chose a busy bus stop up near Haymarket, because I knew there’d be a lot of people milling about.
Living their lives as I went about living mine.
Then I did this…
Do you remember when Cantona scored that goal against Sunderland in 1996?
The video is at the end of this story at 50odd.co.uk if you don’t remember.
Well, I stood like he did after he’d scored.
Looking around for a few seconds.
Taking it all in.
Thinking what a privilege it is to be here.
Sad that it’d soon be over.
But remembering to love the fact that I am here today.
That my life is filled with good people, family, possibility and opportunity.
It is worth remembering – that all of this is worth remembering.
