Great weekend of softball, i was the youngest guy in the tournament and I feel like hell.  Some of these guys can really play, wooden bats and a 12 foot fence are great equalizers.

Planning continues for Dad’s memorial.  Should be a great night on the 23rd of June.  Emotional but worthwhile.

Unrelated sentences?  Not really?  It’s the great lesson of the past 12 weeks.    Life, by its nature, need not be short or long.  Being younger doesn’t mean you’re living better,faster, or longer.  Live to be 10 or 100 – but measure life not by longevity but by density.  Pack it all in.

The “life is short, play hard” idiom has merit, but don’t make it all play.  Think hard about what it all means.  Love your kids and your wives and husbands.  Hug your buddies.  Piss in the woods once in a while.  Cry on the beach.  Its all about the full experience of life, it makes us grow, and it builds the legacies that we are all entrusted with and hope to pass on.

Carole King once sang “My life has been a tapestry of rich and royal hue. An everlasting vision of the ever-changing view”.  But I believe our lives are defined less by our own view of the world, than how we are viewed in the visions of others.

Peace and love y’all.  2 cms of snow tonight.  Drink it in
