When all is said and done, one's life is just the briefest of time on the earth. We have only a fixed amount of time on the planet to do the work we are here to do.
I truly feel like every day I strive to use my existing gifts and talents as well as I can, in the service of the causes I believe in.
Then, I know that at the end of my life I'll be happy that I did what I was able to do, in the time allotted.
I took this picture while travelling in Alexandria - it is Pompey's Pillar and the Sphinx. The funny thing is this monument is completely surrounded by tenement buildings and apartments. You wouldn't think it from the angle I took it, but this ancient and interesting tourist attraction is literally enclosed by signs of modern life like laundry, motorbikes, noise, and lots of people.
It just goes to show you that regardless of what you leave behind, the times will continually change, adapt, grow, evolve, and move forward.
