To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children . . . to leave the world a bit better . . . to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived; this is to have succeeded.Ralph Waldo Emerson
You can still succeed now, maybe more so.
Cool videos to share with your kids:
I mean, just look at some of these:

Music to revisit:
Writing process that I was thinking about:
This is what I do for everything I post:
Write all of my thoughts on a subject.
Argue against those ideas.
Explore different angles until I’m sick of it.
Leave it for a few days or years, then repeat those steps.
Hate how messy these thoughts have become.
Reduce them to a tiny outline of the key points.
Post the outline. Trash the rest.
