“Live like it could go away,”
As Patti Digh’s been known to say.
But here is the quandary:
Why do the laundry?
We’ll stink on the 38th day.
In Life is a Verb, Patti Digh wrote about living life as though you had 37 days to live. If I only had 37 days to live, I would spend my life savings and not bother doing the laundry. How can we have both? And we end up talking a lot about grief and disability.
