"If It’s Hard to Say Goodbye, Your Life’s Been Truly Blessed!"

"A note of caution:   We can never achieve goals that envy sets for us.  Looking at your friends and wishing you had what they had is a waste of precious energy.  Because we are all unique, what makes another happy may do the opposite for you.  That's why advice is nice but often disappointing when heeded."

Energy does not die...

"I believe there are two sides to the phenomenon known as death, this side where we live, and the other side where we shall continue to live. Eternity does not start with death. We are in eternity now.

The Human Condition


"All the world's a stage, 
And all the men and women merely players; 
They have their exits and their entrances; 
And one man in his time plays many parts, 
His acts being seven ages.” 


- William Shakespeare
