Mid Life Crisis candle burning? Nope. It’s more like this:
“I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got to hold up for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.” — George Bernard Shaw
Thank you, readers and regular followers of Mid Life Celebration. Your support is one of the reasons I write daily. The main reason, of course, is to leave a trail for our son. My wife and I are in our early 50’s and he’s nine.
It’s sort of like The Last lecture concept, except I currently am not aware of any terminal illnesses. In The Last Lecture, Randy Pausch was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and given six months to live. At that time, his three children were all six and under. He set out to leave a trail too.
If you got some “bad news” and didn’t have time to “leave a trail”, would there still be one?
