More Immortality

Ran across this reference to Merv Griffin (1925-2007), whose birthday was earlier this month.  He was an entertainer, talk show host, game show producer (Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune), and overall media mogul.

He was buried in Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery and his headstone epitaph (even though in his book "Merv", written with David Bender in 2003, states it would be "Stay Tuned") reads "I will not be right back after this message."

The second theme is a bit darker and less hopeful than the first...but is the more realistic.  What comes after really is the big question, isn't it?  But since we just don't know, the only sensible approach is to simply live each day to its fullest--to include a hearty dose of trail running--and thereby brighten our trek towards immortality.
