Someone, wish I could remember who, said that life was just one damned thing after another. Another said that life is made up of all the moments in all the days. My mother told me never to expect any big deal out of life. My personal mantra is to enjoy the good moments as much as possible and to endure the bad ones with as much grace as possible. Also, it’s all good; every day spent above ground is a good one.
Also, I realize that not everyone — very few people, in fact — have been lucky enough to have a life as pleasant as mine. To them, I apologize for my blitheness.
