The right traveling companion

"Susan Sontag wrote that we all hold dual citizenship in the kingdom of the well and in the kingdom of the sick. Of course, we hope to remain in that first kingdom as long as we can but if - and, inevitably in old age, when - we move on to that other bleaker territory, most of us fervently hope we have the right traveling companion by our sides."
- Judith Timson, writing in The Globe and Mail about Ed Broadbent's decision to retire from politics to be with his wife, Lucille, who has cancer.
