And te tide and te time þat tu iboren were, schal beon iblescet.Time and tide wait for no man. This is an old saying, very old. So old that the first recorded use was in Middle English, that half-German, half-French, half-English ancestor of our current tongue.
- St. Marher, poem in Middle English, 1225 A. D
We went with Dad to the doctor yesterday. I wish that the prognosis were better. We hope for a victory, but even a delaying battle is of infinite value.
These moments bring the entirety of the human condition into sharp focus.
If you were going to die soon and had only one phone call you could make, who would you call and what would you say?
And why are you waiting?
- Stephen Levine
Every day is a gift. What would you do with it?
