Life Letter of the Day

I thought Christine Wenc’s friend’s existential rant closing “Smoking is Sublime” was apt: He says [of smoking], “It’s like signing your name on a wall. ‘I was here.’” My mother was a smoker for 40 years. Then it killed her—three months ago, at the age of 60.
She just missed her first grandchild, my daughter, who was born last month.
Yeah, she WAS here.
