We’re caught in a cosmic time tangle from which there is no escape.

We are creatures of time, from birth to death.

Yet when we die, our atoms live forever.

We are forever creatures after death (and even before birth).

Yup… We are cosmic time travelers.

So here’s what to do:

Love your dog and your life. (If you don’t have a dog, get one.)

Love your significant other (if you have one).

Love your cat. (As with a dog, if you don’t have one, get one.)

Love this time you have between birth and death, even if your atoms will live forever.

You’ll always be in the cosmic mix of time and space.

Meanwhile, enjoy this fabulous place. It’s quite amazing, really.

Look up at the stars, planets, and all those galaxies.

Look at the moon.

Stay as free as you can on this planet of possibility.

And make some waves..
