|Another way of looking at life and death.
A Leaf In The Wind If you pray for anything from anyone, pray for this! Pray that death comes quickly, mercifully, and quietly. When the time comes embrace it. Whether it's an ending or a new beginning doesn't matter. I have seen to many for to long linger on it's brink, and it's terrifying. Do not fear death, but do fear the pain that comes before it. Do not fear losing your life. But do fear the ability not to enjoy it. True, life is precious and should be preserved, but not at all costs. The cycle must be completed. It's the cost of admission. We pay for that with our first breath and our last. No exceptions! The journey we take between the two is up to us. It is our responsibility and job to be who we are, and to enjoy the tiniest of moments, nothing more. We float upon time, with it, for only a short period. Like a leaf temporarily kept aloft by a gust of wind. However, sooner or later the leaf and us must land. Our turn on the ride is over. With any luck at all, we will have lived and enjoyed the ride. Like the leaf in the wind, let us fall softly, quickly, mercifully and quietly to the ground when our time comes. This is my only and last prayer. Tweet
