Carelessly discarded yesterdays

I'm still listening to Bill Bryson's 'I'm a stranger here myself' audiobook. It's a collection of columns he wrote on his return to the United States to live.

One particularly poignant entry concerns Bill taking the opportunity to play ball with his youngest son upon realising that the boy will 'never again be seven years, one month and six days old. So you have to take these chances while they are there'.

It's a valuable lesson. Life is indeed too short...

Amen to that, pal.
