#52 / Good Advice: Enjoy!

I know virtually nothing about Warren Zevon, except what I have recently read in the Wikipedia article that I have linked above, and what I found out from a Peggy Noonan column in The Wall Street Journal.  

Zevon, pictured below, was an American singer-songwriter and musician. He died in 2003. According to Noonan, Zevon appeared on the "Late Show With David Letterman," in 2002, as Zevon was dying from mesothelioma. Here is Noonan's report on Zevon's conversation with Letterman: 

Mr. Letterman asked how his illness had changed him. Zevon's answers suggested he'd come to feel awe for the barely noticed gifts we're given each day. "From your perspective now," Mr. Letterman asked, "Do you know something about life and death that maybe I don't know now?" Mr. Zevon answered: "I know how much you're supposed to enjoy every sandwich."

Thank you, Warren Zevon. That's very good advice, indeed!
