    I think about death every day.  It helps me take the long view of things.  I really appreciated Paul's passage.  It was timely in that I have a draft email sitting in a folder for the last few days, deciding if I should send it or not.  I decided to let it "sit" and see what unfolded as the days passed.  I will not be sending it.  Sometimes waiting...sitting, as Paul put it, gives us a chance to take the long view rather than the short view, which may include reacting rather than responding.

    A favorite quote by Tagore's:  Death is not extinguishing the Light.  It is putting out the Lamp because the Dawn has come."

    Thank you.
