Facing death
recalling the "virtues" of my life
(why am I keeping score?)

letting the foibles haunt me
Who am I trying to please?
What am I measuring up to?

Good questions, Michael. Sounds like you're dealing with a lot right now. Is it your mother who is in the hospital? This is hard.

Michael, I don't believe anyone who visits this space could leave without reflecting, as you do, on the things that matter in a life. Thank you for sharing these wise words and powerful images.

You have always been a blessing in my life and always will be.

Thanks, FA. Yes, questions of a lifetime. My mom isn't in the hospital. The woman featured in my previous post was a stranger.

Thanks, Doug. You're a good man and a good friend and a good colleague. I know I often appear distant and detached, but that's just me giving my own silly fears and suspicions more power to prevent me from pulling my head out of my ass. "Whosoever diggeth a pit shall fall in it."

Thank you, Lisa. It's comforting to know you're there.
