Dear 16-year-old Me

In memory of Larry who would have turned 62 May 30th.
He was 31 when it first showed up; 58 when it took him.
Be informed; be smart; LIVE!



My plan now that I am 65 is to live each day like I am dying.LIke the song by Tim Mcgraw. Of course I and everyone else is dying a little each day. But I'm taking it a step further. I want to taste life before I go to the great beyond.
I want to get up each day and expect and experience adventure and fun.
I'm traveling a new path and it feels scary yet exciting. I'm renewed.
Many thanks for reminding us life is short!!!

Having just had several spots removed and biopsied (everything was fine) I am more aware than ever of the damage I did to my skin. This is a necessary message to share.

Very sobering indeed...and an important reminder. Life is short - we need to be mindful to enjoy the journey!
