I’ve been on this lifestyles for fifty years, been seeking to figure out its riddle for 42, and been protecting diaries of clues to that riddle for the ultimate 35. Notes about successes and screw ups, joys and sorrows, issues that made me wonder, and issues that made me snicker out loud. How to be truthful. How to have much less pressure. How to have amusing. How to harm other people much less. How to get harm much less. How to be a excellent guy. How to have that means in lifestyles. How to be extra me.
Recently, I labored up the braveness to sit down down with the ones diaries.

Hopefully, it’s medication that tastes excellent, a few aspirin as an alternative of the infirmary, a spaceship to Mars with no need your pilot’s license, going to church with no need to be born once more, and guffawing during the tears. It’s a love letter. To lifestyles. It’s additionally a information to catching extra greenlights – and to knowing that the yellows and reds ultimately flip inexperienced, too. Good good fortune.
