In the blue zones, a life without regrets and endless gratitude

The blue zones of the world are where people forget to die, where life expectancy is higher by a lot compared to other parts of the planet. These places are not locations for prosperity benchmarks, which the supposedly developed and civilized part of the world might consider markers of development, having aspirational heft. These are locales where people are living and loving, thinking and sharing, being and breathing, accepting and caring, observing and watching, protecting and persevering — all most collegially, and with a mindset that cares for the collective and not just for the self.
