Time passing

Today is a day on which I’m keenly aware of the passage of time. Partly because I’m blogging when I should be packing. But mostly because of a quick string of email I just exchanged with an old high school friend, Paul. I seem to get in touch with him regularly every other year. He and his wife Shannon just had their first child, a boy. Say hi to Lex Colton:

My friends Paul and Shannon's son Lex.

It’s important for me to remember that there are more important things in life than the day to day grind. Some days you get to meet a whole new person.
