If I could save time in a bottle...
I attended the funeral of a friend's father today, and, as these things do, it made me stop and think once again about what's really important. Those who've been following our blog for a while will know that my own brother passed away at the beginning of the year. Here is part of a post I wrote for a forum at the time:

If you have family far away, call them and email them often. Your clients can wait. Your family can't. I often thought of phoning my brother to chat, but was always too busy on other people's urgent work - I would give anything now to have those hours and minutes back just to laugh with him and share the day-to-day trivialities of our lives.

We lose perspective very easily, as we get busy with work and deadlines and shopping and cutting the lawn and blogging and making food and watching TV and so on and so on.

So make some time for the important stuff today, okay?
