Well, I made it to Day #13,880! Thanks to everyone who helped me reach that milestone. I put together a little video (one of my first forays into the world of high definition) of a related get-together; you can find it here or click on the thumbnail picture.
Here’s looking forward to 13,881! Or, dare I say, 13,923? The days follow in lock-step, one after another, as if climbing up or down a flight of stairs, or following a path that leads somewhere surprising. Each day has its own value: its own level of appreciation, amortization, joy, and loss. I hope that I may continue to improve in how I encounter each individual day.
