I should print this writing and read it daily. Thank you for the reminder that now, more than ever, we need to savor every moment of life.

A friend who's a few years younger than me ended up in the hospital this week with complications from COVID. I am terrified for her. But the difference is between her and me is if it were me in the hospital bed potentially looking at the end of my life, I know I'd have significant regrets.

Your piece and Angie's hospitalization is a huge reminder for me to start living a bigger life as best I can right now. There has never been a more important time to do so.

Like you suggested, I've already begun taking deep breaths of the night air when I'm out with the dogs for their 'night-night pee-pee,' and I've learned to stop and truly look at the beauty of the plants I'm surrounded by.

Life is truly a one-way ticket and what you wrote reminded me to take more chances.

Far more interesting internally than externally. I write to quiet the voices. Deleted Facebook & Twitter thereby immediately quieting 1000’s of voices.
