How we spend our days is of course how we spend our lives.
There’s an old story about a guy who wanted to be a poet.
Poets don’t typically get paid much, so he reckoned it best to move to Australia and work on a cattle ranch until he could save enough money to go back home and start writing.
After about 40 years, he reckoned himself sufficiently funded for poetry, so he moved back to London and set up an office.
Then he had a heart attack and died.
I know, it’s a ludicrous idea and a sad story.
We prefer happy endings and longshot champions.
