Someone says the wisest people are not the ones with the most years in their lives, but the most life in their years. So how do we put the most life in our years? By making every moment count? Count for what? Maybe what Annie Dillard says about writing in The Writing Life is true about life: “spend it all, play it, lose it all, right away, every time... give it, give it all, give it now.” So what do we do about life? Pursue it. Hunt for it. Our goal is not to live long; it’s to live.
