When I was younger, I used to like to go to cemeteries and read the headstones. Haven’t done that for years, but have fond memories nonetheless. My previous post has kept me up looking at virtual graveyards and reading blogs for the past few hours. It’s always interesting to me how one thing leads to the next, that’s life I guess!
As for death, whether your religious or not, the truth is that at the moment of death the person that just died no longer is the issue — it’s the people still living it’s an issue for, their friends and family, those that get to carry on without them. Those that get to clean up whatever mess of a life they got stuck with. Should I drop dead today, I’m leaving a terrible amount of work for mine. I know this and I don’t feel good about it, but honestly I’m just not motivated to take the time to tie up all my loose ends in case of that inevitable event. At some point though I will (at least, that’s what I keep telling myself…).
