Dear Mike

Tonight you spent 45 minutes writing an exposition on longevity and its impact on so-termed “quality of life”. You wrote for 45 minutes in order to determine that only one sentiment mattered. Then you scrapped what you wrote and wrote this instead.

Wish for health. Pray for old age. But whether you live to be 80 years old or 130, scientific advancements and medical procedures will not cure your regret of not living fully while you had the chance.
