    Many years ago, in the midst of a hectic career as an artist and film-maker, Carol Cooper of Cooper Financial managed to persuade me that taking  Critical Illness Insurance was a Good Idea.  It was not an easy task: I typically look at life in project-sized gulps, not what might happen in distant futures.  Only it wasn’t a distant future, when I had my heart-attack; it was a few days after turning 60, in the peak of health.  Suddenly, I could no longer travel, and work was reduced from all-nighters to a handful of hours.  When Carol reminded me about the Insurance—which, surprise surprise, covered eventualities like heart attacks—it seemed as magical as any Act Three twist ending.  The payout granted me the time to heal, to take care of my family without worry, and to reflect on how amazing it was to have met a Guardian Angel so long ago, whose specialty, it seems, is getting though thick skulls with Good Ideas.  My eternal thanks, Ms. Cooper (who also had the grace not to say ‘I told you so’, even though, once upon a time, she did).”
