Good morning Paul. If you are not growing, you are dying. Don't die at a young age and then patiently wait to be buried years later. Enjoy your day.

I would enjoy growing old in a place like that and being able to soak up that view each and every day!

Love this, Paul!  It reminds me of the phrase "just passing through"  Grow, learn and be a better person tomorrow than you were today.
