Hey! Gotta TICKET TO RIDE…!!
For some reason, I have long thought of Life as being a privilege to live. It seems to me that we all get this one, precious, TICKET-TO-RIDE. The lucky sperm, as it were. The guy who beat a couple of thousand other frantic tadpoles to it. Hay-hay! Look at ME…! Bingo…!
In this manner, I tend to think of “getting my ticket’s worth ” and “drinking the cup dry “. I wrote a scribble one day, called, ironically, “Let’s Ride “.
I also wrote “Manifesto “, with a strange, almost burning intensity. It was just the way I felt about things – passionate, wanting to GO, move, RIDE.
If you go to “Francis Meyrick ” and click on my avatar, you can then select “view all works “. Some twenty two pages of titles open up then, (Yeah, I know, what a lot of scribbles), and on pages 3 to 5 you will find a bunch of scribbles labelled “auto-biographical – spiritual quest “. Most any of these, when I go back and look at them, seem to incorporate that same degree of passion. Thirst. A desire to explore, push my mind, live on the edge.
I am therefore often at a loss to try and understand permanent, long term, utter, total, black, terminal depression. I can understand being miserable, but for me that’s usually a finite period. There comes a point I’ve had enough. The middle digit then gets exercised, like this,
… and on we ride.
Gotta TICKET to RIDE…
