      Simple. Powerful.

      was I there? Or did I miss it?

      Live. Carpe Diem.

      I got this in my inbox two weeks ago, read it, and it lingered around in my head all that time. Everything will end.

      Beyond a 10! As a woman who loves words, writing, talking, expressing, I LOVE this from all angles, all perspectives, all of the all it calls forth! YES - be present, love the joy from it, the lessons from it, the passion and the urgency from it. With gusto - do it all with open hearted gusto! Whenever I see your name Jay, I always read to the end!

      I know this is meant as a wake up call but it sounds rather depressing

        I found it inspiring! But yeah, I feel ya. The most interesting (and poetic) stuff often is — both depressing and inspiring. All wrapped up in a tight little knot.

        Even the simple expression “yolo” (you only live once) is kinda dark if you think too deep about it.

      Enjoy the present moment. Eventually, everything will cease to exist.
