I was absolutely stunned by the news last night of the sudden death of James Gandolfini. Of course it’s typical to miss him as an actor and his contributions to our culture. The myriad “RIP Tony” posts on Facebook are a testament to how much he was loved and respected for his work.

But what about the sadness of the loss of his LIFE?

His hopes and dreams. The things he left unfinished.

Watching his 8 month old daughter grow up. Perhaps, even retiring quietly somewhere in Italy.

All the things he planned to do someday. Well, someday came suddenly yesterday for him.

No one expects when their feet hit the ground in the morning that it will be their last day. We all have our share of somedays. So whatever your somedays are, all I can say is it’s time to get busy people…

Life is Now.

So eloquently said. Life is Amazing too many people spend their life saying I wish I had or only if.

Part of being alive is living the dream every day whether u express it in art or in music or simply by taking a step in your own direction

Live learn and love

Thanks for the reminder

Very well put my brother. I’m sure your words can be applied to many people who were taken at a young age. Our own Father, I’m sure didn’t plan to leave Mom a widow at 47. However in our case I seem to feel he somehow had a ‘feeling’ that he wouldn’t return home. I’m sure he had a list of ‘Someday’s’…….

How many times have we had an argument with a loved one that was over something small and insignificant? Clear the air and reconcile…..we only pass this way once……

Thanks again for your insight and perspective, it’s definitely an eye opener and wake-up call to ‘do it now’.

Well said. It’s a shame that we waste so much time waiting to begin.
