I’m 29 going on 30 and still do some of those things. Will continue to do so until the sunsetting moment comes to me, I’m sure. God Bless such a beautiful man and his words so as to spread the way in which life should be lived: from within. Keep the faith, fellow humans! =)
ha! your comment made me smile, as i’m 57 going on 58, and i still do most of these things.. or strike out the word ‘still,’ thought recently i prompted friends to ‘skip’ and not dance down the street here in rural ecuador! we laughed and laughed and laughed and pondered attempting a cartwheel but suspected that might backfire!
it’s sad that only one author replied, though wow, what a lovely and powerful reply the students received! lisa/z
Love his letter and that he responded. And, love the advice on many fronts.
btg, i love that you called my attention to this post (and blog!)
i chuckled at adamintheeve’s comment (above) and i’ll reply to his as well!
how can one not smile when reading that great letter?! lisa/z
