Project 40 & Figuring it Out – Day 25 – Dust in the Wind
Day 25: dust in the wind
Driving home from Christy's house last night the Kansas song "Dust in the Wind" came on the radio. I had a serious dude moment in the car with the windows open, wind flowing through my hair, Kansas playing, and me nodding "duuude" with the lyrics 'all we are is dust in the wind' sinking in.
I looked up the lyrics when I got home and found out the title of the song is a Biblical reference paraphrasing Ecclesiastes: "I reflected on everything that is accomplished by man on earth, and I concluded – Everything he has accomplished is futile, like chasing the wind"
Some people get this a little sooner than others. It's difficult in our money making accomplishment body years to see past this stage and I'm always looking to people who do. What is really important in this life? It is helpful for me to reflect on this daily.
