Life is What Happens...

I sincerely do apologize to all my readers for my prolonged absence. I have been occupied with planning the next phase of my life. Truth is, life doesn't stop while we make plans and then resume when we think we have it all figured out. Life goes on. Hence, I was reminded by a dear young man that I haven't blogged in a while and so this post is dedicated to him for encouraging me.

I just saw a picture of Liam Neeson's late wife, Natasha Richardson who passed away as a result of a fall while on a ski trip. I remember how engrossed the media was with the actress and the nature of her death. At least for two weeks. Now, Natasha Richardson may be all but a memory to those who only knew of her after her accident and from roles on the silver screen.

Life doesn't take breaks and the wheels of time never stop turning. Even those who will be greatly celebrated will all be but a memory someday. An oft quoted verse in the Bible reads, "He that observeth the winds shall not sow; and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap." So, live your life. Carpe diem. Laissez les bon temps rouler!


  1. I like it!

    Today, I was driving home and I was listening to what else? ATC, and the discussion was centered on who? SotoMayor. I thought to myself, "I wonder if Harriet is going to blog about this". Nevertheless, life does go by.
