Catching up

We watched Life as a House tonight. A great movie with so much to say about the dash in between - the part where all too often we spend too little of our time. Ironically while watching the movie I got an email from a childhood friend. He'd written a few weeks back and then computer problems prevented his getting back in touch. It has been great getting caught up on all the happenings of life and a reminder of just how small the world really is. My friend's brother now lives in the same town in Japan where my father spent his high school years. A small world indeed - just without the terrible music.
