The Value is in Time and Experiences

No matter how long you live, you will have died too young.

You will be broke in that time. You will be flush in that time. You will love and you will mourn the loss of love. You will enjoy toys and gadgets and furniture and clothing. You will want for those things you don't or can't have.

Almost everything you can possess in this short time will be taken away.

Except...

The books you read.
The music you love.
The movies that inspired or transported you.
The vacations you take.
The moments in bed with the one you love.
The look in your mother's eyes when you tell her you love her.
The stories you tell and are told about you.

Life is short but doesn't have to be empty.
