Gary Beckman, former owner of Edge Life Expos & Events (sold to and former owner of The Edge magazine, is now in palliative care in a Minneapolis area hospital. His home has been emptied of its contents, his vehicles given away, and nothing of his former "stuff/life" exists. His wife Insiah died several years ago and his two cats passed away this year. It is, of course, the precursor to what we will all one day face: Death. 

My association with Gary began in 1992 when he and I co-founded The Edge newspaper;  our collaboration ended in 1996 when my sister Dee and I started
Twin Cities Wellness newspaper (now Essential Wellness magazine).  The Edge  eventually evolved into The Edge magazine in the 2000s and was sold to its editor and account executive.
Back to Death. This circumstance has me thinking about all the efforts made to be successful, accumulate stuff to make a life, and then in a couple weeks it all disappears. It makes me ponder how serious we need to be in the doing, on the journey. Probably not very serious. We are totally on that archetypal Fool's Journey and we must live life with a lighter touch knowing that one day it all goes away.
