Stuff you already know, but is worth repeating in light of recent news..

Life is short. The recent passing of someone my own age, suddenly and unexpectedly, is a grim reminder of that fact. While I believe that life is not a finite thing, but rather our infinite souls are temporarily housed within the confines of a finite vessel, I do feel it's important to not take time for granted.

Tell people you love them. Do it often. Forgive more. Both others and yourself. Do what makes you happy. Indulge in, and surround yourself with the people that make you happy. The people that make you a better person. Don't wait for Valentine's Day, or any other Hallmark holiday. Don't wait for when Kay Jewelers says it's the right time. Don't wait for the diamond, or the house, or the perfect moment. There are no perfect moments. Just moments, and you never know when you've come to your very last one.


And that's all I got to say about that I guess.

that's the fact, Jack. you pretty much got it right. I am glad I got to meet you after reading some of your LJ entries. I know we don't know each other well, but we know each other. I learn from your entries and enjoy your funny stories and crazy exploits. I think no one can ever have too many friends!
