I, as many of you did, paused yesterday to reflect on the anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy. Many things have changed since then. I think one of the biggest changes for most of us is how we view the frailty of our lives here on earth and our relationships with those we care about. A good friend taught me that year to always "keep your ducks in a row" with those you love as you never know what lies beyond the next curve in life. I've tried to do just that since then and while I have a duck or two left to line up, I'm very pleased with the results so far and have confidence that I'll complete the task soon.
Take time out of your day and call a loved one and tell them that you were thinking of them. Don't wait for another tragedy in your life to think of it - it could be too late.
Lastly - Rage on some new music this week. Play something you'd never try otherwise. Listen to some classics or some roots music. Clear your soul. It's a wonderful life!
