This weekend, the boy-o's football team will make their last stand on a cold field lined with parents and spectators--hoping for one more win. My days and nights will be filled from here until Sunday with yet another some stolen writing time. An unapologetic chill laces the air--the edges of fall starting to slip away for the long winter coming. I will sip my steaming mugs of Chai and try to breathe it all in, slowing down the fast-forward momentum of my life right now.

"When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love."
--Marcus Aurelius--

I cannot think of better advice for a busy and running, now.
