The Longest Rest


Have you ever dozed off during a movie, woken up during the credits, and been surprised to find you missed the entire film?  Sleep sneaks up on you like that.

Or a seldom opened desk drawer reveals an outdated driver's license and you marvel at how much more... taut you looked back then.  Age creeps up on you like that.

Maybe instead of an ID, that old photo is in a high-school yearbook surrounded by signatures, inside jokes, and references to future plans you no longer recognize. Life gets away from you like that.

Unless you pay attention.  

Cherish time.  

Follow through. 

So that, when you lay your head down the very last night, there's nothing left to dream.
