Last City Day

By | June 24, 2005

Today is the last day I am going to work in San Francisco. The company is moving to San Mateo. It is exciting. We are moving houses next week too. The future smells like a bakery at 7am. Sweet and full of promise.

The deli across the street gave me my breakfast sandwich for free this morning as a thank you. Good people over there. I will miss the City. Lots of good places to eat.

It is times like this that I wish I could sum up life in a clever analogy. Here are some from others, feel free to add your own.

  • Life is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you are going to get. – Forest Gump.
  • Live as if your were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever. — Gandhi
  • It is not length of life, but depth of life. — Ralph Waldo Emerson
  • There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle. — Albert Einstein
  • Life… is like a grapefruit. It’s orange and squishy, and has a few pips in it, and some folks have half a one for breakfast. –Douglas Adams

And of course:

Jack Palance: “Do you know what the secret of life is? One thing. Just one thing. You stick to that and everything else don’t mean shit.”
Billy Crystal: “Yeah, but what’s that one thing?”
Jack Palance: “That’s what you’ve got to figure out.”
~From the movie City Slickers
