Dear Double D,

Wow. That was a life-altering Monday, wasn’t it? That’s a powerful reminder not only of your fragility as a human being, but also your impermanence.

Of course these reminders don’t all take place in a dive bar in Bangkok. It could be from a 25-year-old man in the middle at an intersection in Manhattan. Or an obese, smoking housewife who just turned 60. Or a 45-year-old marathoner from an undiagnosed heart condition. The point being, can we learn from that, do we want to change our lives & to LIVE, really live? You said a resounding YES!
