On Living Each Day as if It Were the Last, A Notable Exception

Marcus Aurelius, in his Meditations, famously advises the reader to “live each day as if it were [his] last.” Seneca, who flourished 150 years earlier, offers similar advice in his Moral Epistles.

The Enthusiast will ignore these ethical dicta at his own peril — unless he has tickets to see Europe at Metall Svenskan in Orebro, that is. In this one isolated instance, the Enthusiast should probably live as though May 26th or 27th were his last day.
