Do you have enough for the day?

Sometimes life hands you what you need.
Even on the internet.

I was trying to stream Diane Rehm, and instead stumbled on these two essays. 

Bill Harley, on getting by with less than you thought you needed:
Lost luggage on a beach.

And Philip Gould, on how imminent death illuminates how much one actually has: 

Makes the work, whatever it is, make more sense. Put your shoulder to the wheel. Carry the water. And call a friend.
