Nick Posted this quote on his Facebook page: “”Once I realised I was old enough to die, I decided that I was also old enough not to incur any more suffering, annoyance or boredom in the pursuit of a longer life”
~ Barbara Ehrenreich.
Investigating the author of the quote, I found this article in the Guardian.
The views expressed by BE resonate with me though I haven’t had to handle any form of cancer. I however know some people very close to me who have and one of whom is still coming out of the after effects of chemotherapy. Leaving that aside, her take on the rest of one’s approach to living the rest of one’s life requires much wider reception and I am doing my bit by blogging about it and posting my blog on Facebook.
I have ordered for the book that she has written – Natural Causes: An Epidemic of Wellness, the Certainty of Dying, and Killing Ourselves to Live Longer.
Thank you Nick.
