Life is short… I like to pay attention while I’m going through it
As long as I can remember, when I was a little kid I have always been conscious that we are here for a limited period. Not really fearing death at all, but as a little boy I did resent it. I thought it was unfair because there are so many things to do and adventures to have. And as an adult you realise you can never read all the good books. You can’t even see all the good plays or movies or travel to all the places you want to see. It’s impossible. I don’t resent my mortality any more; I’m just conscious of it. Life is short and there’s a fine line, you know. You can be too frantic and desperate, but you can also be too lazy.
