Quality of Life

Spend the afternoon. You can't take it with you. - Annie Dillard

Have you seen one of Monet's Water Lilies in person? If you have, maybe like me, you were stunned by the magnitude of their simplicity. A few colors seemingly spaced haphazardly, but just the right colors spaced just so, and like breathing they made a miracle.

The painting was much bigger than I expected, also. Again, like life. Big. Complexities masquerading as simple colors and spaces. A marvel of exquisite beauty and delicacy.

This is your life. You get one. No one else will answer for your life at the end. Make it a masterpiece.
