    “…he who has braved the storm of life and lived…” until his forties “…or he who has stayed securly on shore and merely existed” until his eighties, has raised children and built a legacy?

    A couple of days ago I saw a Star Trek Next Generation re-run that had a theme like this, as Picard lived a life where he didn’t get into trouble: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tapestry_(TNG_episode)

    Live fast, die young, and leave a beautiful corpse?
    .
    Screw that. I’m having fun and living long. Doing really stupid and dangerous things is not “fun” nor conducive to long health.

    Hunter S. Thompson DEFINITELY “braved the storm of life”.

    Oh, let me repharse that: IT’S better to keep your distance from anyone who’s smoking!

    Depends on what happiness means to you.
    That is what he meant.
    Are you happy??? If you are……there is the Zen in it.
    If you are happy being the hero….be the hero.
    If you are happy at being the accountant…be the accountant.
    Most of all……BE HAPPY YOU ARE ALIVE.

    I really love Zen Pencils, it is one of my favorite strips. But… the real existential question is… why do all of the women have freckles?

    @nwdryad

    The author likes his women with freckles.
    I would educate a guess.

    The cigarette in the holder is a connection to Hunter S. Thompson, yet the whole point could have been made just as well (if not better) without it.

    I am enjoying my life and expect to have many more great years. I cared for my 4 children until they were grown.
    I did the work of mother AND father after I divorced a violent man (now he and a younger brother who cheated me are both deceased).
    .
    I can be happy that they passed on and I’m in good health. I would tweek a few things if I could afford it, but I will take no meds, I eat and love well and even DANCE!

    @DAZZ

    And keep dancing DAZZ.
    I will help keeping the beat going.
    Don’t dance so good but not embarrassed when I do.
