So we said our final goodbyes to my co-worker yesterday. A funeral Mass at a local Catholic Church. During the recital of the Rosery Thursday evening, one of his friends recited the following. I thought I would share it with you.

"We are travelers on a cosmic journey--stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. But the expressions of life are ephemeral, momentary, transient. Gautama Buddha, the founder of Buddhism, once said, 'This existence of ours is as transient as Autumn clouds. To watch the birth and death of beings is like looking at the movements of a dance. A lifetime is like a flash of lightning in the sky, rushing by like a torrent down a steep mountain.' We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment, but it is transient. It is a little parenthesis in eternity. If we share with caring, lightheartedness, and love, we will create abundance and joy for each other. And then this moment will have been worthwhile." -- Deepak Chopra

Think of this in each encounter with each other and be safe out there....
