Since moving to Japan four years ago, I have become very interested in the oldest people in the world. That's probably because so many of them are from Japan! We recently learned that the oldest man, Yasutaru Koide of Nagoya Japan, died at age 112. He said his secret to living so long was not smoking or drinking, not to overdo things, and "living with joy". He died of heart failure and pneumonia last Tuesday.
I think I'm going to focus on "living with joy" so that whether my life is long or short, it'll be the best it can be.
