On balance in life
As previously noted here and elsewhere, I have always been a very late bloomer. Moreover, with my 57th birthday just around the corner and my health no longer as good as it used to be, I spend a lot of time nowadays reflecting on my own mortality and wondering how I can best develop and refine my particular abilities and gifts, and then put them to use for the benefit of others, in whatever time is left to me. As a Latter-day Saint, I have long since grown accustomed to our frequent admonitions from the pulpit to exercise "moderation in all things." With all of the foregoing in mind, I enjoyed reading this article today, and can't say I disagree with it even though it advocates the exact opposite of "moderation." Kudos to my friend Farnoosh for putting together a most enjoyable and thought-provoking piece of writing, one well worth sharing here with others.
