93-year-old blogger: "It Bothers Me That I Have To Go"

Blogging is really catching up game for everyone. Donald Crowdis is a 93 years old blogger. For a person with 93 years of age, he can give remark such as "Been there, done that" to almost any matters in life. Nevertheless, he admits that time is limited for him, and he really doesn't want to go yet. Check out his blog here.

I've floated on the remark "Been there, done that" for some time now, but the notion that the moment is approaching when I can no longer say this bothers me. The truth is, I don't want to go.

There are many reasons. For too long I have behaved as if I could postpone going indefinitely, and thus have so many things that I must do first. I don't want my successors to find out how much I could have done that isn't done, not by a long shot. There are numerous notes and letters I must write. There are places I've wanted to travel, but never had the chance. Actually, each of you can, if you think yourself into my age, fill out the list. At least you can try to understand why I say that I hate to go.
