We are all familiar with the expression “Time Flies,” but where did the phrase come from? Time flies is a translation of an older Latin phrase “tempus fugit,” a poetic expression that captures the inevitable passing of time and the need to enjoy the time that humanity has.
It seems like time flies is the perfect expression for this year. Everything is moving so quickly. Summer is over, and we are now approaching the fall season. Before we know it, we will be celebrating the holidays and the New Year.
It is my intent to find a way to slow down, relax and enjoy all that life has to offer. Something I have never really done. I am a workaholic. I always have been. It is my goal to change this in the coming months and year ahead. This revelation comes a few days after we lost a very dear friend unexpectedly, and we are in the process of losing another dear friend due to cancer. October is national breast cancer month and March is National Cancer Prevention Month. Cancer is a horrible disease and much needs to be done to raise the needed funds to help find the cure. When I think about it, cancer has touched so many lives and it does not discriminate. It affects girlfriends, guy friends, moms, dads, husbands, wives and families. If you can afford it, donate to help find the cure. We plan to.
This issue has some very interesting articles from our talented pool of writers. Raising your child with creativity is a good read as the new school year has just started. The article on President Trump might raise a few hairs, but has an interesting theory behind it. There’s some very good advice on what to look for when purchasing a boat. Several of the articles address the need for us as a society to protect our environment, marine life and endangered species. We are so fortunate to live in this country, and have the freedom to have open discussions.
We hope you enjoy this issue and look forward to your comments.
