I have always believed in the suggestion and sound advice of "Carpe diem" (to seize the day).
However now I am more inclined to sneak carefully up behind it and gently pick its pocket. My seizing days are pretty much over.
To quote the late Mister Buffett, "Changes in latitudes and changes in attitudes" Going with the flow of necessity. To quote my grandfather "The old grey mare ain't what she used to be." Or stallion either.
