Message for the Living

I found this quote shortly after my cancer diagnosis and it has been my motto for life ever since. This, my friends, is what I plan to focus on when it comes time for my final minutes on earth.

"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave
with the intention of arriving safely
in an attractive and well preserved body,
but rather to skid in sideways, Champagne in one hand
--strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up,
totally worn out and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!"

Allah yerhamhoo

It's good to know I'm heading in the right direction with the "well-preserved" thing having been given up the ghost some time ago. Woooo!

And a very happy Ash Wednesday to you, Bint. :)

Makes perfect sense. No need of leaving here well-preserved.

Yes, Kay. It removes a lot of pressure. :)
