In an instant

"You sit down to dinner and life as you know it ends. In a heartbeat or the absence of one."-Joan Didion in her book "The Year of Magical Thinking."  She was describing the death of her husband who died while they were  eating dinner together.

49 people were killed this week, at an Orlando nightclub, while in the midst of having fun socializing and dancing by a deranged gunman.

A 3 year boy, visiting Florida with his family, was dragged into a lagoon this week by an Alligator and drowned.

Last evening I hit an errant tee shot, on a par 3, and struck an egret that died instantly.

Tomorrow evening at 9 pm will mark the 1 year anniversary of when my wife, daughter and I were watching TV and Tori collapsed.

"Everything can change in the blink of the eye. But don't worry; God never blinks."

Got it.

All the recent reminders aren't necessary but continue to drive the point home.

Today's mantra: "Accept what is, let go of what was, and have faith in what will be."
