"Because we do not know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well, and yet everything happens only a certain number of times ... How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood ... that is so deeply a part of your being that you can't even conceive of your life without it? Perhaps 4 or 5 times more. Perhaps not even. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps 20. And yet it all seems limitless."
We tend to take a great deal for granted, because we feel like we're going to live forever. It's only if we lose a friend, or maybe have a near-death experience, many events and people in your life suddenly attain real significance. When you take into account the fact that that could have been the last time I would ever see that person or do something so mundane as go out to dinner ... This is where I am coming from. I realize how precious each moment of life is.
So...I take pictures, rock & roll, travel, own business(es), coach soccer, play pool, care for my family, live, work, and play :)
"Buildings burn people, people die, but real love is forever".
I am dangerous because I am never bored.
You will either like me or hate me, not much room in between.
