brief reminder

This morning I stopped swimming in order to de-fog my goggles.  As I kept myself afloat, I looked towards the horizon and contemplated the ephemeral nature of life.

It is like a bubble on the surface of the ocean.  Or a rainbow.  Or a reflection of the moon in a lake.

We think we have many years ahead of us.  Perhaps we do.  Or perhaps we don’t.  Either way, there is an end point.

Let us always be mindful of our fleeting life.

Let us not waste it.
