Paying respects

This weekend I traveled with my mother and a group of family friends to Mansfield, Ohio for the funeral of a mutual friend. He lived a full life in his 83 years so I don’t view it as an occasion to mourn. We will all die one day so all that is in our power is the ability to make the greatest use of our time alive.

In the space of 48 hours about 15 hours was spent driving with much of the remaining time spent in a hotel room. Aside from some minimal reading no real productivity was accomplished. I did manage to watch UFC Fight Night: Swanson vs Lobov to break the monotony and I was glad to see Maurice Smith selected for induction into the UFC Hall of Fame.
