…is the title of my “personal” channel on YouTube.
The problem is that YouTube are screwing up everyone’s homepages AGAIN. So I have “rescued” its text and will leave a few URLs that lead to here, for anyone who cares to read the piece. It goes thusly…
One thing we can never know about our life …is when it will END.
Of course, like the movie star George Sanders, we can choose to cash in our chips at a pre-determined point.
But while – like George – I am less than enamoured with the prospect of losing my powers and/or my marbles …I have no such plans.
I worked and schemed HARD to retire at 50 – and now life is GOOD.
And anyway, I have RESPONSIBILITIES – like a WIFE (not to mention two dogs, a cat, several squirrels and a squadron of LBBs – all of whom depend upon ME).
In any case, since this is undoubtedly the only life I will ever GET, I OWE it to myself to keep on truckin’ – forever looking around the next bend.
After fifty-eight summers in this place, I have evolved a belief-system: Atheist-Buddhist-Darwinist-Humanist-Cosmicist-Continuumist – which convinces me that this is IT. There is NO “after-life”.
Thus I intend to leave my MARK in THIS life and since I do not, realistically, expect to ever become a famous movie star (or have a marble statue erected in my honour) this humble channel will have to suffice.
How long it will LAST – depends entirely upon FATE. Perhaps a new cleaner at YouTube will pull the plug on the main-frame out, to connect up their hoover?
But while YouTube DOES survive, it will include these frozen moments from my life – that gave me pause.
Now statistically I SHOULD have about twenty-one years LEFT in this existence, but you never KNOW – so I have done this thing NOW.
After all – I may conk out before I even finish th
Please enjoy this slice of my life…
