In The End

A man died the other day out in Katy, TX. He was at his computer and died in the chair where his wife found him. The police arrived and did their investigation. One officer looked on the walls and noticed several certificates and degrees. On the far right was a Doctorate of Philosophy. The man was a doctor. It brought to mind some interesting points. No matter how hard one works, or what he has accomplished, in the end all those papers are good for are decor. On the other hand, one has to do something with their life. Instead of wasting it, put it to good use. There is time for play, and time for work. However one has to mix the two just right to be happy and sane. One of the officers thought of taking some time off and do something fun. After all, looking at the dead man in the chair, time is limited.

I think it's all about the lives we've touched and the people we've loved...

It is easy to forget how brief and unpredictable life can be.

I try to occasionally remind myself that nobody laying on their deathbed ever uttered "I wish I had spent a little more time at work."
