  • It's tough to look back over my life and not regret certain moves, places where I zigged when I should have zagged, you know? However, I have learned that as the sum total of all my experiences, I cannot question past decisions anymore.

    The nose-to-nose I experience with people is the joy, the hope and humanity of my life. It's not the past, but the future that keeps me going day to day, as if I have 100 years left in this lifetime. I experience people as gifts and want to enjoy them and then share them with friends so they too can experience the joy of that human being that I have come to know. Sometimes they don't see in each other what I see, but that is fine. I see enough for everyone.

    Live as if you were living a second time, and as though you had acted wrongly the first time. -Viktor E. Frankl
