Good Morning Ancient Ones,
While there’s no guarantee that urns made of ceramic bricks with glazed images of the dear departed featured prominently will sell, but I intend to find out. Every time I walk into a Walmart I’m depressed at the numbers of ‘old’ people that toil there and remind myself I’m two paychecks away from being a ‘greeter.’
Having said the above, there must be other reasons that the elderly chooses to work because there’s a 78 year old woman that works at my company who ten years ago was left a small fortune by her late husband but would rather work than be ‘retired.’
I think we’ve all heard those stories about people dying within days after retiring or losing a spouse. What is it about working that when one stops they lose the will to live? I for one would like to personally test this but will need a research sponsor. I’m willing to suffer the consequences once I stop working and drop out of the corporate grind and will happily accept my destiny.
If I manage to survive for 12 months then I can resume my art without fear of dying from acute depression. I think it’s worth exploring don’t you?
