Thank you for the laugh out loud. To this I say each to his own, Stephen. I am so past that intense urgency of our times that say that if you’re not doing something epic then you’re worthless. First, that is just SO not true. And for some, to your point, just making it out of bed in the morning is epic enough. There is much to be said for defining our own lives without feeling as though we have to prove something. My passions happen to lead me in a certain direction — until eventually they won’t. At some point I suspect I’ll be damned glad to get out of bed and make it to the kitchen myself. And like my mother, if I am supremely fortunate, will die in my sleep on my own terms. Thanks for the chuckle.
