It's All So Fleeting

B had to speak at a charity art auction downtown earlier tonight and just as he was leaving he came across a framed sketch by San Francisco-based artist Paul Madonna that he loved and that he thought I'd love, too.

Although he believed that the sketch itself was neat and unique, it was the words within the sketch that struck a chord with him and then, a little while later, with me.

I want to absorb every moment of this, enjoy every second, every smallest particle of perceptible time.

I am so damn happy. And I've been alive long enough to know it's all so damn fleeting.
