Outliving the Bored, Broken, and Out of Breath
I have written the following that I want read at my funeral in forty years: "He was scoffed at a little bit because of his determination to live out his schedule, beginning with his quiet time each morning and including regular times to sleep, eat, and exercise. He lived well, and often grieved the broken health, unhappiness, and too soon passing of others who insisted they needed to be spontaneous, free, and unpredictable. He said they died trying to outrun their boredom. This week, in peaceful sleep at the age of one hundred, he made a quiet transition to Heaven."
