I’m at the Commencement ceremonies for my daughter’s college graduation this morning and will be busy celebrating this great, great, GREAT event for most of the day. It’s been a wild week with very limited writing time. Therefore, the post I had scheduled for today will have to wait. In the meantime, I give you this fantastic saying from Yorkshire:
“YOU ARE A LONG TIME DEAD.”
John of Going Gently told me about this one. He said people in Yorkshire use it to remind themselves of how important it is to live life fully while we still have the chance, because once the chance is gone, it’s gone for a long, long time.
Needless to say, I love it. I figured, in the holiday spirit of giving, I’d pass it along.
