Nick reminds us what’s important

Thankfully Nick Bradbury and his son are OK. His report of getting hit by a hit-and-run driver is riveting. It takes me back to my own car wreck (the report of which, sadly, is no longer on the Web thanks to UserLand pulling down my server without telling me).

But of all the events that’s happened to me in the past six years since starting to blog, that one event changed my approach more than any other. It wacked me into realizing life is temporary, so might as well live life like every day is your last.

Translation: I want more of that banana pudding I had last week at ConvergeSouth’s BBQ. Boy was that stuff good.

If you don’t know who Nick is, he is a developer who brought us all sorts of cool stuff, most recently FeedDemon.
