The Power Of Potential

Here, at the end of the year, it's typical for people to look back and reflect on the previous 365 days. I don't do that. Those pages have already been written and, without a time machine, there's not even the remotest chance I can change them. Which I wouldn't do anyway since I like who I am -- the culmination of all my experiences.

I try to always keep my mind on the future. When I wake up, I ask myself, "What can I do today?" When I'm more coherent (usually much later in the day) I look towards tomorrow and the day after. The future is where we're heading, and I'm going to steer my own path there. The possibilities inherent within tomorrow are limitless. I can build off what I already know how to do. I can change directions. I can make 2011 be better than any year before it.

I can ride my bike with no handlebars.
I can show you how to do-si-do.
I can take apart the remote control and I can almost put it back together.
I can tie a knot in a cherry stem.
I can tell you about Leif Ericson.

Me and my friend saw a platypus.
Me and my friend made a comic book and guess how long it took.
I can do anything that I want, 'cuz look:
I can keep rhythm with no metronome.
I can see your face on the telephone.

Look at me!
Look at me!
Just called to say that it's good to be alive in such a small world, all curled up with a book to read.

I can make money open up a thrift store.
I can make a living off a magazine.
I know how to run a business and I can make you wanna buy a product.
Movers, shakers and producers: Me and my friends understand the future.
I see the strings that control the systems.
I can do anything with no assistance.

Look at me!
Look at me!
Driving and I won't stop!
And it feels so good to be alive and on top!
My reach is global!
My tower secure!
My cause is noble!
My power is pure!

I can ride my bike with no handlebars.
