A few years back, I was in the Minneapolis airport and was walking from the second level to the first floor and I came to a landing between the floors. There was a huge picture window there and I looked out and saw the most beautiful sunset that I had ever seen. I moved next to the window so that I would not impede the traffic and looked at the sunset. I stood there for about fifteen minutes watching the sunset and was surprised that out of the hundreds of people going up and down the stairs, not one person stopped to look at the sunset. I felt kind of sad. They were too busy making a living that they forgot how to live.
My whole working career was involved with computers, mathematics and statistics, etc. but I have always been romantic at heart. When I think about those people in Minneapolis and everywhere, it seems like everyone is in a hurry to go somewhere, but they can’t tell you where they are going and why. We all know the final destination. There is an old saying, “Life is too important to be taken too seriously”.
