SLRP: XLIX. On The Shortness Of Life (Part 1: 1 – 6a)



The swiftness of time is all the more reason to delimit the present.  To circumscribe it with attention, we focus and make better use of this short allotment of ours.

This letter has several quote-worthy passages.  I’m enjoying it and looking forward to its conclusion on Monday.
