A Rememberance

My Father passed away earlier this week. We knew his time was near, but it still happened faster then anyone expected.

The Family has all gathered here and we've been sharing stories from our past. I heard a story about how I almost ran my mother over when I was 18 months old and I released the parking break while the car was parked on a hill. This sharing of stories and laughing is how my family is dealing with the grieving process.

Always remember,

life is short,

break the rules,

forgive quickly,

kiss slowly,

love truly,

laugh uncontrollably,

and never regret anything that made you smile. - Unknown

A Hindu Prayer

I learned a Hindu prayer today

"In the human life,
Let there be light where there is dark,
Let there be truth where there is untruth
and let there be nectar where there is death"

I also heard a new tradition at the start of a project (or starting anything new). A project sponsor I was talking to said he "Goes to the temple and cracks some coconuts." This is a Hindu tradition. When starting something new, to pray for luck, you go to the temple and offer a coconut by cracking it at the temple. I don't think that technique made it to the PMBOK Guide.
