In reading some posts it seems some people ARE just waiting to pass.
I am too old to read all the pages of this thread so if this has been said already, sorry.

Living in Maui we deal with unrelenting good weather, surrounded by joyful and cheerful folks on vacay, not to mention the whole 'aloha spirit' thing......we feel Forced to get out, go snorkeling, walking, etc etc. OMG the pressure to live well is gonna kill us!!

Adjectives (descriptive words). What you say is what you are:

old and feeble and decrepit and bored and uninterested and passionless

creative and alive and disabled and loving and passionate and old

You can do it.
