Need some good Karma for my partner.
I know this is totally off topic, but my business partner of 25 years, Harold, is going through some medical problems and I just thought what the heck, this can't hurt.
About 2 months ago he developed 2 retinal tears in his right eye and had to have extensive emergency surgery. Pretty serious stuff. They even had to fill his eye with Nitrogen gas to hold the retina in place while it re-attached. He was stuck lying on his stomach for over a month while he healed. He finally gets back in the office 3 weeks ago on an almost full time basis so I start hitting the road again to make some $. Well yesterday he calls me that something is wrong and he is going back in. I cut my meetings short and hop the next flight back so we have local coverage. I just got off the phone with his wife. The scarring from the first surgery caused 3 new tears and he is back to square 1, plus his risk of a relapse went from 10% to 20+%. This is getting to be pretty scary.
So send some good Karma to Harold. He can use it. Heck, I can use it too as I have to do 2 jobs for another month or so again and I already work my fool ass off.
There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
