Day 27 - Jack English

Today I read the story of Jack English in the Los Angeles Times.  I was so very moved by the story of this man, his wife, his cabin...his life.  I find myself questioning all the time what I should or should not be doing.

Is this right?
What will people think?
What if it's not something I should be doing?
What if it's what I should be doing but I don't?

And then I read about this man who perhaps asked himself the same questions (I can't really know) but who went and lived his life in the way he saw fit.  And on top of it, he seems to do with a loving and open heart.

In the video above he says, "I've lived a good life..."  

I want to be able to say the same thing when I am 94.  I've lived a good life.

Oh, and I'd also gladly live in a cabin in the woods. These days it seems the most appealing way to live that I can think of.
