There seems to be a clear lesson to learn this year about life and death. I often shrug off the positive cliches about life. Carpe diem. Seize the day. Tomorrow isn't guaranteed. Blah, blah, blah. And I never focus on applying those words to my life.
More and more I'm reflecting on the idea of taking life for granted and that it could end at any time. All it takes is one moment, one accident, one mistake, one situation of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. A blink of an eye.
Yet we walk around feeling invincible. As if it's impossible to experience tragedies and horror stories of which we see on the news. The shooting at my office building this year made me realize that those moments can happen to anyone. Me. The people I care about. So why do I still walk around taking time and people for granted?

Less than four weeks and I'll experience New York City for the first time. The cousin and I have planned a rad vaca. Two nights in NYC and an Amtrak ride to DC where we'll spend a night. Then it's off to Nashville and visiting the parents until we're on the road again to visit the Smoky Mountains. I'm stoked. Eleven days of absolute thrill and bliss cannot come soon enough.
