The Island Where People Forget to Die

The New York Times just posted an article about people who forget to die. It’s been a much debated subject, how come people get to live to a hundred and longer. I spend my time helping people use the time they have well. It would be pretty amazing to combine that with serious longevity. Why do they forget to die?

 Is it it that they laugh a lot?

That they nap when they are sleepy?

Is it that because there is no word in Greek, for example, for privacy, and so everyone on a Greek island with longevity is a friend?

Is it home grown food? Simple food?

Wine in good company?

Working in the garden?

Not counting the money nor the years?

What IS it….?

Feel free to add to above list of questions. The mystery remains. Read the article and marvel From The New York Times.The Island Where People Forget to Die Unraveling the mystery of why the inhabitants of Ikaria, an island of 99 square miles that is home to almost 10,000 Greek nationals, live so long and so well.
