My Life as Mary Tyler Moore

Originally published on MySpace on February 27, 2009.
My friend Jack recently posted a line from the Mary Tyler Moore Show theme song as his Facebook status:

Jack can turn the world on with his smile. He can take a nothing day, and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile.”


I couldn’t get the song out of my head this morning as I got ready for work. I then realized that my life had become the theme song!

So, today as I walk across the big crosswalk to my office in the tallest building in Portland, perhaps I’ll toss a beret into the air and remember that Mary and I have a lot in common. We’re going to make it after all.

The song is called “Love is All Around,” by Paul Williams.

Who can turn the world on with her smile?
Who can take a nothing day, and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile?
Well it’s you girl, and you should know it
With each glance and every little movement you show it.

Love is all around, no need to waste it.
You can have a town, why don’t you take it.
You’re gonna make it after all.
You’re gonna make it after all.

How will you make it on your own?
This world is awfully big, girl this time you’re all alone.
But it’s time you started living.
It’s time you let someone else do some giving.

Love is all around, no need to waste it.
You can have a town, why don’t you take it.
You’re gonna make it after all.
You’re gonna make it after all.
