Re: Mortality and our fleeting legacy

I used to really believe this was the sum of our timeon earth until my father passed away. His funeral was standing room only (600+ people) and it became clear to me that each of us has an effect on others that is not temporary so, in some way, we all contribute to the dirction of mankind. Sort of heavy and sappy but it is really true. Life is short and just a speck of dust in terms of the history of the earth but we all matter to someone.
Music/drumming have inspred me every day to make the most of my time here and since his passing I have really been making a point of making the most of my time and every hour for that matter.
Dont let grass grow under your feet. If you want to do something, go do it. You have forever to be dead and just a short while to live.
(please interpret this in a positive mannerr- it really is a simple set of rules to live by)
