The Dalai Lama was asked what surprised him the most. He said: “Man, because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future. He lives as if he is never going to die, and then he dies having never really lived.”
So true. I just returned home from the cardiac unit at Tampa General Hospital where I had two stents placed in my heart. 90% blockage in the “widow maker artery”. Scary stuff. Fortunately it was not an emergency procedure.
Thanks for your comment. And we certainly wish you good health and many, many years of happing shooting!
Very true. It’s a sick cycle.
Thanks for posting this Rey, a great meditation to ponder as I reflect on retirement.
The photo of the bridge brings meaning to the quote. We need to cross the bridge, to embrace the present miracle that life gives – and the one we so often reject. Thank you for the reminder…
Thanks everyone for the very thoughtful comments…
