Seize the Day


Join Corin White, The Gravestomper, as he takes you through a most remarkable little cemetery in Lake county, IL. Small and secluded yet so full of atmosphere. The cemetery inspires the question: why don't we seize the day then get out of our own way?

Life is Short




Here's a little excercise to remind yourself why it's important to value your life and the opportunities you have here.

It's a potent reminder that life is short and there is no reason to ever let fear stop you from doing anything that you want to do. For a close-up of my gristly reminder, click on the photo.
