Most of us will not see this number in our lifetime. In the blink of an eye we become “grass upon the hills”. We all know life is short so I won’t belittle the point by droning on here. Instead, I’d like to share some resources as we begin a New Year that might help you question, learn, live, and act. Feel free to share some of your own.
