When looking for a phrase, this came to mind: “May you live long and stay well.”
It’s almost a Spock-like, “live long and prosper,” but not quite.
Since my family roots are in the soil of the Scottish Highlands, I’ve learned lots of “colorful language,” to use a term of art. Yet the Scots translation of “May you live long…” looks almost like a curse!
“Lang may yer lum reek!” Perhaps meditating on the meaning of “lum” while in our zero-gravity chamber will give me a new perspective. It usually does!
