Grandfather sees where someone wrote Len that the best thing about getting old is just getting there.
Grandfather says, “Amen!”
In Grandfather’s opinion, Jean-Paul Sartre’s philosophy “Existentialism” boils down to: “The meaning of life is what you make of it.”
Grandfather also says he believes Woody Allen’s pronouncement: “Eighty percent of success is showing up.”
So, now, Grandfather just keeps showing up, making meaning in his remaining life.
