Thank you for your beautiful post.

My dad passed away a few months ago, not yet 65, taken abruptly in an airplane crash. Death can have a way of shaking you out of your daily routine, make you question things. I am so glad that my dad had the chance to retire early at age 55, and glad too that we had become much closer in recent years.

I'm 37, and I am in that phase where you work too much and wish life weren't so busy. I think I am doing a fair job in keeping in touch with the many friends I have scattered to the 4 corners of the world, and then I will talk to one and they will point out that it has been 4 months since we've last seen each other. How does time pass so quickly? I appreciate your reminder that we have to work to stay in touch, even if distance separates.
