On living, for however long

"Be life long or short, its completeness depends on what it was lived for."
David Starr Jordan

Your turn: How are you making your life complete? (Apologies for the existential tone. I'm feeling deep thoughts coming on. Just because.)

This reminded me of William Wallace (don't know where the quote originates, but he says it in Braveheart
"Every man dies. Not every man really lives."

Oh I have one I'll have to check on the author...but it's all about the fact that there is no such thing in anyone's life as an "unimportant day".... it's just a matter of keeping our eyes open!

Hmmm I'm not feeling very complete or that I've even begun.

N Sir William Wallace was my ancient ancestor, as found out by my uncle George.

If life ended tomorrow, I'd have to be satisfied with the off spring n the 4 great off spring as my greeatest accomplishments...

I try every day to do absolutely nothing but breathe for a while. Staring off in the woods or across the river completes me.
