Reasons to Live

Mary Hynes has put together a wonderful array of speakers on one of the must fundamental questions of our existence:  Why do live?  From Steve Jobs to Jill Bolte Taylor to Ray Robertson, who takes up the first part of the interview, this episode shares words of wisdom along with reasons for life.

As you will hear, Ray was suicidal, but when he got over his despression, he turned the traditional question around to ask:  Why not keep living?  Once he figured this out, he wrote a book:  Why Not – 15 Reasons to Live

The reasons are not exactly what you would think such as duty, solitude, intoxication and others.  The perspective is fascinating and worth a listen.
