My generation stands at a watershed lifespan. Some of us just may make the cut, that is, live long enough to live hundreds of years with the life extension technologies now being developed. And some of us won’t “make the cut.”
Wouldn’t it be ironic if after all my passionate blogging and ring-leading, I passed on before “the cut?” Yes it would. People might talk like they did about the passing of running guru Jim Fixx or cardiologist and nutrition specialist Dr. Atkins, “He did so much but his program didn’t extend his life!”
And I say, “Right on! Let the critics also remember that I lived fully and tried to clear the path for those that follow.” Because, really, living fully is all that matters. That is my passion.
