Knowing What It's All About

I'm in transit today to my summer vacation spot in Maine.  The kids, the GF and I are packed into the CR-V with everything else we can cram into it.  Since I can't really write much today,  I'll give you a link to a real writer to check out. 

A good friend and co-worker of mine, Bill Mea, put me on to the blog of Patricia Digh.  Her blog (also hosted by Typepad) is entitled 37 days and is subtitled "what would you be doing today if you only had 37 days to live?"

The title derives from the 37 days her step-father lived after his lung cancer diagnosis.  I simply can't imagine what I would do.  I can't even think about how to order my priorities.  I would have no idea where to start. 

Thankfully, i think i have more than 37 days.  At least i think so, but who really knows.  I guess that is Digh's point.  Shouldn't we all be living by the carpe diem model?  Shouldn't we all be living like our lives are in the balance?

Thanks to Patricia for the great photos and writing and to Bill for the referral.
