He has no regrets and no fear as he lives out his final days

Out for a run in Tampa Bay.

Running is a great way to see things you’d never see otherwise.


While i’m in the middle of an extraordinary milestone (at least that’s what my boss keeps telling me), yesterday i visited with an 89-year old who has asked the staff that he be taken off the 18 pills he takes daily. They’ve relocated him from his Senior Apartment (two doors down from my Mother-In-Law) to the 24-hour Nursing Home (ten rooms down from my Father-In-Law’s room).

Hospice visits him daily, and he told me he has no regrets and no fear.

We fly home in four hours and i will never see him again.

That is, not unless we both believe in Heaven.

He did share that he’s not sure about all the stuff in the Bible – like “streets of gold”, etc.





On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.
