Listen, I’m 82 now and what I have mostly learned is that there’s a lot of stuff I don’t know, but I’ll tell you this much for free: if you wait around for life to come and get you out of bed in the mornings, you’re waiting a long time. You gotta get on with something. Make a plan, write, cook, travel, do something you want to do because woe-is-me loves a blank space.
But you got good health and good friends. A lot of the time, that’s enough.
