And I think that goes for everything... time with our kids, with our loved ones, or just by ourselves... spending time outside in the fall while all the leaves are changing... staying up way late so we can check out the latest meteor shower.. or on the water sailing...

Don't get me wrong... we need to work and make money to provide a life. Just need to keep that balance in mind.
The old Harry Chapin song "Cats in the cradle" is a very good lesson about that.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
