Harlan Ellison announces his time is short. What struck me about this interview is the quoted statement below.
When your time is short, will you say the same? If not, what can you do today to live that life?
“I’m not afraid of death,… All I want to make sure is that when the paper comes out, it says, ‘Harlan Ellison died in his sleep.’ You’re talking to, essentially, a pretty happy guy. No, not ‘pretty’ happy — that’s television talk. I am inordinately happy. I am wonderfully happy. I am Icarus-flying-to-the-sun happy. I have led a magical life. I have led exactly the life I would wish to lead. I have led the life I guess that everybody in their heart of hearts wants to lead.” http://www.isthmus.com/isthmus/article.php?article=30610
