    The financial meltdown — and the resulting distractions — could be a blessing in disguise: it’s a chance for people to really reassess what they’re doing with their time.

    From the article, for example: “What families, even those who are prosperous, typically lose in the exchange are the small grace notes of everyday life, like the ritual of having a daily dinner with everyone present.”

    Great post EJO. You picked a great quote.

    I like the idea of the recession not as a negative event but an opportunity.
