    Gerard, thank you for the fertilizer with which to help cultivate, as the gentleman speaking notes must be done daily, this day.

    Yes, Gerard, more more more please. Is there any more? I could spend my whole life (what’s left of it) listening and being inspired…..

    Cryogenics, I hear they have had some success.

    excellent – my thanks

    You’re too much man. That was fabulous.

    Every night I thank…whomever, for the gift I was given. Every morning I do the same for getting another chance to put my feet on the ground. It’s so beautiful here on earth. I’ll miss it but for now, you haven’t caught me sitting in front of a TV for 30 years-except when there’s a Grand Slam! Hell no one is perfect, who needs that?

    Open your heart to the world, to your fellow man, to your fellow human beings.

    The cost of growing older, is to grow more cynical, less trusting in others. You’ve been betrayed, you’ve been hurt by someone else, by many others, by the world. You’re not going to be taken advantage of again, I’m not that naive. Won’t get fooled again!
    Yet, to open your heart to the world and to each other, is to truly live. It is just today, that’s all we have. Next week is just a promise, and last week is just a memory. Close your heart to the world, and begin dying inside.

    “Go, thoughts, on wings of gold.
    Go, settle on slopes and hills of Earth
    where warm and soft and fragrant are
    the breezes of our sweet land of birth.”

    h/t Giuseppe Verdi’s opera ‘Nabucco’

    Gerard — that young RFD girl I was trying to describe to you? You found her — she’s at the beginning of the video. Something more “beautiful-er.”

    Thank you for posting this one, Gerard– it’s a keeper.

    Ah, thank you for this, Gerard. Grandkids will be here Monday. They’re young and thoughtful; I’m going to call them over to see it. Hope I have the inspiration to lead a conversation about it.

    Thank you, Gerard. If I would watch this first thing every morning, I would be a better man.

    I would very much like to be a better man.

  • Kristin August 14, 2021, 9:15 PM

    So beautiful. Very. Thank you Gerard! Appropriate to end the day with gratitude. It’s like a prayer.

    Why do we forget to appreciate the rare wonderful miracles we have? A medical student was telling us about the human body yesterday- he described the incredible intricacies of the body, the millions of cells all working in harmony. It’s just a miracle. I vowed to take better care of my body after listening to his descriptions. I wish I could remember what he said so I could share it here.
