When a person seems so alive, so full, so present and here, it doesn't seem possible that such a person could really die -- but, of course, they can . . .
Randay Pausch passed away today from pancreatic cancer in his family's home in Chesapeake, Virginia.
The Apostle Paul counsels us in the 13th Corinthians, verse 11: When I was a child, I spake as a child, I felt as a child, I thought as a child: now that I am become a man, I have put away childish things.
Yet there are some childish things that should not be put away, and they are -- our Hopes and our Dreams. As Randay Pausch shared with the world in his last lecture, they are what we begin with, and they will be with us in the end -- if we keep, hold, and cherish them always.
And in living, and in dying, he showed us something else:
It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.
~ William Shakespeare
Thank you Randay Rausch, for sharing with us, and for giving us so very very much . . .
Time is All That Matters:
Young in Hollywood. Jennifer Kaytin tells Roz what it’s like to arrive in LA at sixteen and start living the life of a professional actor. She talks about everthing from driving, to going to clubs, to how to focus in an audition. If you are thinking of making the move as a young person this is an episode you don’t want to miss. Also Darbi and Roz catch up in behind the scenes and there’s an opportunity for internships with Darbi’s hot show: Shoot The Messenger…many interns have ended up performing in or writing for the show.
