I read of a man who stood to speak
At a funeral of a friend.
He referred to the dates on her tombstone
From the beggining... to the end.
He noted that first came her date of birth
And spoke the following date with tears,
But he said what mattered most of all
Was the dash between those year. (1934-1998)

For that dash represents all the time
That she spent alive on earth...
And now only those who loved her
Know what that little line is worth.
for it matters not, how much we own
The cars...the house...the cash,
What matters most is how we live and love
And how we spend our dash.

So think about this long and hard...
Are there things you'd like to change?
For you never know how much time is left,
That can still be rearranged.
If we could just slow down enough
To consider what's true and real,
And always try to understand
The way other people feel.

And be less quick to anger,
And show appreciation more
And love the people in our lives
Like we've never loved before.

If we treat each other with respect,
And more often wear a smile...
Remembering that this special dash,
Might only last a little while .

So, when eulogy's being read
With your life's actions to rehash...
Would you be proud of the things they say

About how we spend our dash?

Dear Maral,

I think I would rather spend my dash
Driving to buffets with lots of cars and cash.
and though your dash length story made my eyes mist
The only length that really matters is of course my list.

Sip,as long as you're happy and fulfilled,that's all that matters...that the dash is full of whatever you love is the goal biggrin.gif

Make that 2 people you know. It's this ritual my best friend and I have, we are probably the only people that I know that enjoy our food like a fine piece of Art. My friends are always amazed how my little elf physique can consume such large quantities of food and how much passion I put in my devouring. eat.gif

Reminds me of a Tolstoļ short story I read a few years ago, "the death of Ivan Illitch". the last days of a dying man who contemplates the emptiness and futility of his life and realizes he has done everything wrong. sad.gif

We should have sushi sometime then. I tell ya, food takes you away from life's hardships as well as the unnecessary time spent in the kitchen cleaning afterwards.

It's better to let people suspect you're an idiot than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

Dance as if no one were watching,
Sing as if no one were listening,
and live every day as if
it were your last.
