The Tyranny of the Urgent

I’m driving up Sunrise Blvd on my way home from the grocery store. A sad song comes on the radio: “Fire and Rain” by James Taylor. Now I’m crying. Cars are rushing around me because I have slowed down; can’t see through the tears. I want to tell them to slow down…the urgency to get somewhere is not that important. Can’t you see my son is fighting for his life???

  1. The same thing happens to me from time to time when I slow down. Yesterday was one of the first hot days and I was remembering his recent visit and our Corona and horseshoes battle. I started to cry thinking about how this summer will be much different for my best friend. I’m having trouble sleeping at night. I love him so much.

    • I know what you mean. My dreams have been very troubled lately. I was depressed all weekend, even after talking to him on Saturday afternoon. This is hard on everyone.
