70-79

We may deny it, but we are acutely aware of our mortality and are reminded of it every time we hear of the passing of a peer. As a counterpoint, we pray, meditate and contemplate the alternative of “keep breathing.” We remind ourselves every day that there are many, many aspects of our lives in which we have tremendous control. We choose life…. We choose adventure…..We choose enthusiasm….We choose to hone skills or try out new ones. This is the decade of “staying sharp.”
