In re-reading this it is terribly maudlin.  Sorry about that. Sometimes these black moods about time grip me.

I'm tired. Years go by. I'm not actively self-destructive, but I'm also not particularly thrilled to be alive. Perhaps that will change.

Life is what happens to us while we wait for our life to happen.

I've lived my life in a fairly frugal/conservative manner for the most part. I've had several friends pass over the past few years and it's changed me. I'm less afraid (go ahead and buy that expensive car - you only live once! Go ahead - tell your boss what you really think - worst they can do is fire you! Etc.) and I have to say it's been a bit liberating. I only wish I felt this way 10 years ago but things have to happen in a specific order for them to make sense in our lives.

An interesting book you may (or may not) enjoy: "Falling Upward" by Richard Rohr.

He's a Franciscan Priest but it's not so much a religious book as one about life.

Cheers!

Warmest regards,

I'll check it out.  I'm not religoius but I'd be a fool to turn away wisdom just because it's from a religious source.  Thanks Bob!
