|Laura Linney in the movie Man of the Year (2006)|
The show, explained 46-year-old Linney, "deals with all of the stuff I've been obsessing about anyway: Time. Living. Aging. Mostly the privilege of aging." A privilege, because not everyone gets to do it.
Her lesson: Do the things that matter to you and take pleasure in your daily life. Eat more desserts. Spend time with your kids. Cling to those you care about.
It made me think of the last line in Life Is a Song by Patrick Park: "I always forget how strange it is, just to be alive at all."
