Earth Day 2017

The Rochester Earth Day Festival had a lot of “green” vendors selling stuff. What if there were, instead, a festival of sun and fresh air and spending time with friends and family, taking pause to thank our planet for giving us our life. We cannot buy ourselves out of this pickle and recycling plastic is an insufficient response.

On a different note, we rented Collateral Beauty last night from Xfinity on Demand. It was a beautiful story with many interweaving threads.  I will watch that again.

Unique look at time and what’s left. I like this author’s perspective.

Setting aside my secret hope that technological advances will let me live to 700, I see three takeaways here:

1) Living in the same place as the people you love matters. I probably have 10X the time left with the people who live in my city as I do with the people who live somewhere else.

2) Priorities matter. Your remaining face time with any person depends largely on where that person falls on your list of life priorities. Make sure this list is set by you—not by unconscious inertia.

3) Quality time matters. If you’re in your last 10% of time with someone you love, keep that fact in the front of your mind when you’re with them and treat that time as what it actually is: precious.
