Holiday Schnapps 1: A Long Bright Future

A long bright future. Let’s hope it is. It’s time to wish Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas or whatever we wish for others. Ironically if we’re thinking of our longevity at another year’s end, time seems very compressed. So here is the first of a few  short  “Holiday Schnapps” postings.

If you’re looking for a book to read on the theme of longevity, try A Long Bright Future by Laura L. Carstensen, Ph.D. – founding director of the Stanford Centre on Longevity. Here’s a quote…

“I expect that to come fully to terms with life, we must let go of the fantasy of immortality…. It redirects our energies to something achievable instead of something in the realm of science fiction, and let’s us  get down to making the best of the years we have.”

Make the best out of your “Holiday Schnapps”!
