I have just got back from a rather wonderful two week holiday in Kerala with my wife, Catero. It was very special ... and one of the interesting spin-offs was the perspective one can get looking back at one's everyday life typically played out over 5,000 miles away. I'm immensely lucky ... happily married, close to our children & grandchildren, healthy, blessed with precious friends, and committed to work that's a vocation more than a job. Of course, old age, illness and death lie in wait for me and for those I love. Of course this sunlit period of our lives is temporary. And that can make it all the sweeter ... see, for example, Frias's study "Death reflection enhances gratitude".
