Closing in on what we have all been anticipating, easy to lose perspective on life.
A good friend my age (61) just died. We shared the same birthday.
A mountain of a man, with as big a smile and a vigorous crushing handshake. I had just thought about him yesterday, and how I missed that greeting from him. R.I.P. Steve King.
Slams the focus of my laser thingy into proper perspective. I haven’t seen the forest for the trees.
I don’t write this to bring a downer into anyone’s life, just a reminder that the best things in life are not the things.
Hug those who you love and reach out to those who bring meaning to your life. We tend to lose sight of all we do have, and we live our lives as if all of time were ours to dispose of. Only some passing moments belong to us, they are our greatest treasure. Enjoy your afternoon, and behave accordingly.
