brief reminder

As I stopped to de-fog my goggles this morning, I took a moment to contemplate 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.
