Free Range (9/4/08)

As human beings, we all carry a proverbial mortality buzzer around with us from day to day. And just like the buzzers they hand out in restaurants to tell us when our table is ready, we have no idea when it’s going to go off. We can monitor the situation by asking for approximate wait times, but we can never be sure when those red flights will flash, accompanied by that dull, vibrating sound. I suppose the best we can do is to cherish our time on earth and to not twiddle our thumbs as if impatiently waiting for a dinner table.
