Summer BBQ Schedule

August 11 Jackie & Dave's place

"I counted my years and found that I have less time to live from here on than I have lived up to now.
I feel like that child who won a packet of sweets: he ate the first with pleasure,
but when he realized that few were left, he began to enjoy them intensely.
I no longer have time for endless meetings where statutes, rules,
procedures and internal regulations are discussed,
knowing nothing will be achieved. I no longer have time to support
the absurd people who, despite their chronological age, haven't
grown up. My time is too short: I want the
essence, and my soul is in a hurry. I don't have many sweets in the
package anymore. I want to live next to people who
are very human, who know how to laugh at their mistakes and
who are not inflated by their triumphs and take on their responsibilities.

Thus, human dignity is defended, and we move towards truth and honesty
It is the essential that makes life worth living.
I want to surround myself with people who know how to touch hearts, who have
been taught by the hard blows of life to grow with gentle touches of the soul.
Yes, I'm in a hurry. I'm in a hurry to live with the intensity that only maturity can give.
I don't intend to waste any of the leftover sweets. I am sure they will be delicious,
much more than what I have eaten so far.
My goal is to reach the end satisfied and at peace with my loved ones and my
conscience. We have two lives and the second begins when you realize you only
have one. "
