A Professor's Final Lecture

Professor Randy Pausch of Carnegie Mellon University reprises the final lecture of his career and his life. His words are inspiring, poignant and full of wisdom. And they are affecting me especially deeply this week, as I just turned 47....Professor Pausch is 47 and is dying of pancreatic cancer. What would my final lecture be if I knew I were dying? What would your final lecture if you knew you were dying? (This video takes 10 minutes to watch and is worth each minute). Also see his webpage. (With gratitude to Suzanne who sent me a version of this video).

Taking Care of Others

An animal-loving friend just sent this photo of a Dachshund mom who has adopted as one of her own an orphaned piglet. I love how animals take care of those in need sometimes.
