You know, it’s a shame life is so fleeting; so many albums left unheard, so many photographs left unseen, so many goals left unattained, so many cases left unsolved. Here, in the twilight of my life, I am grateful for having been alive for a short while. I may not have lived as a prince or an admiral or even a married NT, still, I had life, not as bad as the people the Khmer Rouge massacred, the people of Pompeii burned in the path of Mt. Vesuvius or the people frequently swallowed whole by the earthquakes in Chile. Still, I had life, the greatest gift anyone can receive, polished by freedom, unstained by wisdom, enlightened by music.
