When is enough enough?

I'm not old. Sixty five. I look younger, but how much more time do I have? Twenty three years from now will be the age my father died. Thirty-four years from now will be the age my mother died. I still have some time. Right? I notice, however, that I think about "the end" a... Continue Reading →

Why are you living your life?

Why are any of us living our lives? As for me... Well, I was born, so I gotta live, right? Life is exciting.
