occurred to me recently that I have never chosen

the end of my life, I wonder what might have been.

5: 18-20 What I have seen to be good
and to be fitting is to eat and drink and find
enjoyment in all the toil with which one toils
under the sun the few days of his life which God
has given him, for this is his lot. Every man
also to whom God has given wealth and possessions
and power to enjoy them, and to accept his lot
and find enjoyment in his toilthis is the
gift of God. For he will not much remember the
days of his life because God keeps him occupied
with joy in his heart.
