I just had breakfast with my friend Amit Gupta. He started Photojojo, my favorite photography site on the internet. And 10 months ago, many of you may remember, he was diagnosed with leukemia. In the meantime, the internet came together to save one of our own. He received a bone marrow transplant and is doing very well thanks to an anonymous donor with a perfect match. Hearing Amit talk about life, and specifically time, just made me so, so happy. The vast majority of us don’t consider every day that absolutely every single second counts in this life. We’ll never have to face that realization until we’re old and ready. But when you make it through such a threatening experience, your outlook changes. You become the person we should all be milking every single second out of this wonderful existence.

Thank you Amit.
