“I’ve come to think of my lifetime as a relatively brief vacation, and my body as resortwear – perhaps a nice sundress, or a pair of colorful shorts. Like all vacations, this one will feel like it’s over much too soon. And also like all vacations, I will return to my real existence with a handful of nice memories and a certain sense of relief about leaving all that rigmarole behind me.”
