The Stoic Jew
Reflection on Counting 52 Weeks of My Life (Seneca – On the Shortness of Life)
Show Notes

Synopsis: Exactly one year ago I launched the “Weeks of My Life” calendar experiment. I was reminded of this by a friend who just listened to the Counting the Weeks of My Life episode I made upon launching that experiment (see the show notes for the link), who asked me how this weekly experiment has impacted me since then. I decided to make an impromptu episode in which I answer his question.
