Michael , Why didn't you TELL that girl you LOVED her ???

I love you ... with ALL my heart ...

IF I don't see you , I am gonna DIE !

And so , Micheal Corleone embarks on a detour ...

FOR mi famiglia ...

HOW common and true is THIS ???

To Be bound to duty by your family ...
HOW often does THAT happen ???

WE start out as children , WE play ...

WE begin to mature AND build a LIFE ...

WE may go to college AND dream of a better LIFE ?

And then ???

DUTY ...
DUTY ... This may mean going from HIGH SCHOOL to serving in the military ...

OR , it may entail enrapture into FAMILY drama ... DYSFUNCTION ???

AGE old questions , of CULTURE and family history ... For sure .

HOW long can a detour last ???

5 years ...

10 years ...

30 years ???

HOW long IS a life ? REALLY ???
HOW long is your life ... EFFECTIVELY ???

LIFE happens , while YOU are making OTHER plans ...

SOUND familiar ?

YES !

What happens while WE are making ALL those plans ?

WE AGE ...

WE slowly change ...

WE begin to die .
IF , WE are NOT busy being BORN ...

WE are busy DYING ?

I had lots of plans ...

And so DUTY , as Immanuel Kant , Philosopher ; says

DUTY , separates us from animals ...

IN a strictly HEDONISTIC society , whereby PLEASURE is ALL one wants ...

Such a mandate as DUTY , is a big DOWNER .

NO party goer would DARE listen !
WE are gonna HAVE FUN , fun , fun ...

TILL daddy takes the T BIRD away !

IT seems that everyone tries to ESCAPE from DUTY .

RESPONSIBILITY ... is a bad word ...

However , IT shapes US ; and matures US into WHATEVER we become ...

So , How Bad Is That ???
WHEN WE lose sight of the FORREST for the trees ...

OR a single tree , for THAT matter , we are not LIVING ...

WE are busy doing something ELSE .

The past is gone ... The future doesn't EXIST ;

ALL we have is NOW !

Make it GOOD ...
