Our Town by Thornton Wilder


I just finished reading “Our Town,” by Thornton Wilder.  There is a passage at the end of the play that really struck me.

Emily has died in childbirth and her spirit is wondering about.  She does not want to remain in her grave, but wishes to relive one day of her life.  Unfortunately, this proves to be so painful for her that she returns to her grave.  That’s when Simon Stimson says,

Yes, now you know.  Now you know!  That’s what it was to be alive.  To move about in a cloud of ignorance; to go up and down  trampling on the feeling of those…of those about you.  To spend and wast time as though you had a million years.  To be always at the mercy of one self-centered passion, or another.  Now know – that’s the happy existence you wanted to go back to.  Ignorance and blindness.

Life is short and we are often to busy to enjoy it.  Whatever you are doing today, take time to enjoy the moment.
