Life is short. Focus on the things that matter. Carpe Diem! (In video form).

“The first and the last clip were the most powerful. Your parents looking down into your crib after you’re born. Your children looking down at you while dying on a hospital bed. Heart in throat. Powerful. ”


“Not shown: A couple of decades working just to put a roof over the head of you & your loved ones.

Now go back to playing in the pile of leaves with your children.”
