The Journey of Life

Do you remember Jannick saying, “One day, you’ll be just a memory for some people.  Do your best to be a good one.”  Susan replied, “Are you sure that you are not talking about Yannick Jacob, the guy who likes to help people think, learn & grow and who hopes to inspire the world to embrace their human condition in all its beautiful and challenging facets, as I think that this saying might be from him.  Well, what about it anyway?”  Bill said, “Life is short and we are both going to die one day and I was just reflecting on my mortality and I thought this was appropriate.  I am going to make a living will and I thought that I might use this statement as a prologue to give who ever reads it my reason for making it out.  We just topped 300,000 Covid-19 deaths and I know that the vaccine will be coming soon, but as we are on this journey called life, we are stuck in a cycle of new beginnings and sad endings.”

  1. Jim, it is so true, especially with the pandemic, that many people are thinking about the what-ifs and if their affairs are in order. I guess it is only natural but it can still be upsetting or cause anxiety. Thank you for participating.
