Much of my life is spent in waiting for something to happen, show up or be revealed. Next week I will be celebrating my 70th birthday. My Father never made it it this far and my Mom didn't live much longer either. I am not taking anything for granted and after a tough couple of months I have decided I am not waiting anymore if there is any way to avoid it.
Some things are beyond my control, but frankly most are not and so it is my time to just get on with it. I am lucky to have enjoyed a lengthy and successful career or two, and so I am not letting any grass grow except that which I plant myself.
