...an obituary June 9, 2017

My mother has died this day, however the many lessons she taught remain. The last lesson was poignant and demonstrated she could still teach her eldest son a timely indelible in her late eighties: The older one gets the more important diet and exercise becomes. Their neglect can have dire impacts on one's health and lifestyle choices.

My mother's many teachings give me motivation and insights today and have done so throughout my earliest memories. I loved my mother and am grateful to have known her. She is missed but not forgotten.

Water takes the lowest way. It flows around obstacles. It has no projections but it penetrates that which has no crevices. It’s the softest of all things, but it grinds rock. It resists nothing, but is irresistible. It asks for nothing, but nourishes everything. It strives for nothing, but trans- forms everything.

These are a few of my favorite things...
