the lost man chronicles
the daily chronicle


An ad for Tim McGraw’s new country music album I passed this morning read, in big, bold, black letters—“Live Like You’re Dying.”

The irony being of course that we are dying, and every moment of every day we die a little more.

And oddly enough it takes good friends with twangy voices to remind us of this eminent and imminent tenet of life.

For life is tendered but by a string with two ends, the wick which once lit burns out eventually.

I live my life like there's no tomorrow,
and all I've got, I had to steal
Least I don't need to beg or borrow;
Yes, I'm livin' at a pace that kills
~ Running with the Devil, Van Halen
