Bryson has a terrible cough that has plagued him for the last few...well months...but it has really taken wings this past week. Animals get put down for less.
I can imagine that being so close to death has taught you to appreciate the little things in life. In a world where you want be socially relevant and also find some form of existential peace, is remembering to enjoy yourself a liability?
P.S. Stay away from the light.
