"The interesting thing about living for the moment is that there's a moment right after it, and a moment after that, and then before you know it, the sun's come up. So, when they say, live for the moment - live for the moment, but then go to sleep."

Eddie Vedder, 07/03/2003 Boston before "In Hiding"

Eddie Vedder is wonderful. He's really just a neat person, and one hell of a musician.

the interesting thing about that quote is that we actually never live for or in the moment, everything we perceive as happening in the here and now actually happened fractions of a second before our senses could recognize their occurence. so in reality we're all living in the past, in but a powerful and consuming memory. and we all know eventually memories get fuzzy around the edges, turning into a dream that may or may not have happened.

so when he said live for the moment, but then go to sleep .. why not just say, dream all you like, but don't forget to sleep.

just a thought.
