Going through some things this morning I ran across this sent to me by my late friend, Jim Mulford, and it hung with me as it does each time I read it. I’ve never really been able to comment on it because it seems that it says everything that need be said on the issue, and while that often doesn’t keep me from commenting on something, here it always has:
“I blinked and I am nearing the end.
Sometimes I just want to shout: ‘Pay attention to now, exercise some discipline in your life, love somebody hard, keep yourself fit.’
It seems we think that way only when it is too late to do anything about it, or maybe that’s too self-revealing.
And yet, we carry on and do some good.”
