Every organism is miraculous, every breath is fresh, and every person is precious.
I fully understand that everything I am is contained in electrical impulses between my ears. I also understand that one day those electrical impulses will end and so will I. Because of this I try and enjoy every precious moment of life that I have. I know that one day I will die, but my actions during my life will carry on through others in many ways for as long as humans thrive. So I make everything count.
