I reread a story from Guy Vanderhaeghe’s new collection

The story, Live Large–in which we meet a blowhard small time businessman who overleverages himself to attain a status symbol and gradually realizes he is losing his financial situation as he takes in the beauty of his surroundings on a golf course and recalls his childhood and the times he played with his kids– says to me that you can only live large when you know you’re time is running out and you make peace with it, and then heartily embrace the graceful pleasure of the moment.
