John Y’s Musings from the Middle: Over Analyzing

When I was in my early 20s a friend and priest told me that I had a tendancy to over-analyze thing.

He said I am the type person who has to “understand first” before I will experience life.

He said I had it backward.

That with life, we experience it first and, if we’re lucky, we understand a little of it.

He was right.

I just listened to the song Kodachrome by Paul Simon. I didn’t understand ut but thoroughly enjoyed it.

I’m not sure that Paul Simon understood what he was singing about–but glad he sang it anyway.

Today I will try to experience more and worry less about understanding it.
