I remember the day Moments began to take shape. It started with the first line,
“Time waits for no one…”
And then came the piano melody, which caused the next few lines to flow automatically onto the page of my legal pad.
Several people I knew had passed over the course of a few months, including the remainder of both sides of grandparents and a dear friend. I was living in Portland at the time and working crazy hours at a super market to make ends meet, too broke and busy to make it home for the memorials. I felt raw and numb, as I came face to face with the reality of the fragility of life once again.
People are more important than things, more important than even my own dreams. My vision changed, and my priorities were rearranged, as I made it my mission to make sure those in my life knew their value and how much their presence meant to me. Life it too short not to take risks and speak out. To do all that you were created to do and be all that you were created to be.
The present is all we have to seize the day and make the most of the brief moment in history we have to not only chase after our own dreams, but to help others see their dreams become reality. I realized that to reach my dreams alone would be cold and shallow. Life only matters if you share it with the people you love.
“I cut holes in my pockets, symbolically so, you know I see no treasure like you…”
