Face to Face with One of the World’s Deadliest Animals in Australia

Lions, tigers, and bears. Oh my! When I think of deadly animals, my mind conjures up images of big bad beasties like these. But I recently encountered on of the world’s deadliest animals, and it looked like it should be in a Finding Nemo movie and not the harbinger of death. I have a secret to reveal.

Video Message from the Dead: Start Living Today.

Here is a very VERY personal video message that I recorder while visiting my Father’s gravestone this December on his birthday. I recorded this video after writing a letter to him of things I never got to say to him before he passed. While writing this, I was struck with a sudden sense of understanding about my own life, what I want to get out of it, and how precious ever second of every day is.
