There's No Such Thing as a "Quick" Meetup with My Family

And for that I’m so grateful.

I found myself passing through Staten Island this early evening with my pup, so I called my cousin (who lives there) to see if I could swing by real quick and show her the new addition to the family. Well, she put together a lovely dinner, followed by tea and dessert, and I stayed all night yapping it up with her.

More and more as I grow older I consider interaction with family and friends the best possible use of my time. We come into this world alone and we leave it alone…but at least while we’re here we can share in this life together with others.
