timing is everything

There's a little "cook" book called Timing is Everything: The Complete Timing Guide to Cooking by Jack Piccolo. The great thing about this cookbook is that there are no actual recipes in it. It's all about timing. And life is like that too. It seems to me that everything is mostly about timing. It's the timing of events which concern most of us. Our birthdays are on a certain exact date, and yet we may still get cards, (a little late) or gifts (maybe a lot late-if you're me) or even well wishes (later still, cause they just plain forgot). But you still celebrate it all, maybe not as enthusiastically as you did at first, but it still counts. So, the next time you think that it has to be exactly so, or it doesn't count, think again and go ahead and do it. Wish that person a good day, or a great vacation. It's not a recipe that you can mess up, it's life and every good wish counts. Oh, and by the way that little cookbook is one great gift for the soon to be graduate. Even better, tuck it in the suprise box for the kid who is going away to school. You can't mess this one up. It' s the perfect recipe.
