Un Bel Di Vedremo
One fine day, we will see
Arising a strand of smoke
Over the far horizon on the sea
And then the ship appears
And then the ship is white
It enters into the port, it rumbles its salute.
Do you see it? – Madame Butterfly (Cho-Cho-San)
I can so relate to Cho-Cho-san. I mean the girl is the the original optimist. She only kills herself at the end of the third act to make certain of a better life for the son she named Trouble. Given her particular operatic situation she may have done the right thing. The half-white son of a geisha would not have fared well at all in 19th Century Japan. What are third acts for anyway?
We have all had the experience of waiting on a promise and praying that the promise sees fruition. We want what we want and that’s not a bad thing it just isn’t always a wise thing. We can probably count on one hand the times when we wanted something that actually turned out to be the best thing for us.
Do you stop praying? Wishing? Dreaming? Hoping?
Keep your faith alive. Keep your promises to yourself and others. Wait for one fine day when destiny brings your ship to port after so much hard work and consternation. Don’t give up! Ever.
Just leave enough space for grace and the possibility that what you say you want isn’t really what you should have.
