Re: Just Do It--You're Not Getting Any Younger
A good friend of mine used to say the same thing. He reached his 50's relatively well preserved with lots of plans. Five days before his retirement, he suffered a massive stroke. He lived, like a vegetable, for another two weeks or so. Tomorrow isn't guaranteed. A year off likely won't kill you at 48. Seven years might.
There is only a slight chance of being killed by the sea. There is a one hundred percent chance of dying of old age, or disease. Why be more scared of the sea, than of life?
