Twinkle, Twinkle Little Life

Just yesterday we lost former child-actor Gary Coleman. And now:

RIP DENNIS HOPPER ... of "Easy Rider" and "Blue Velvet" fame...

Some times it is good to consider death. What if you were told that you had 24 hours, just two sweeps of the hands of the clock, before you would die. Who would you reach out to? What would you like to do that you've never done? What favorite food would you like to eat? Is there a movie or an old movie or TV show that you would want to watch one last time? A song that you would enjoy hearing again? A person you would like to embrace or say "thank-you" to? An old friend or an elderly relative you've almost forgotten about? A charity you would like to help?

Here is your mission: How do you know that you DON'T have 24 hours left? Make those changes and seek out those experiences. If you are successful, you'll never look at yourself in the mirror the same way ever again.

  1. yes...we don't know when is the exact time when we bite the dust and that's why (as a Christian), I live a life that determines what will happen to me after death-----I believe I want to pass to eternity---which is heaven. Not all people who believe in God goes to heaven (as this was described by Jesus that not everyone who cries out, "Lord, Lord...." will enter heaven).

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
