Move It Along, Please
Death is delayed, never avoided. Such a comforting thought, seriously, and not morbid at all. It merely points out the obvious, which is, all we've got is today, baby. I wish I could be one of those that 'knows' there is something even more wonderful in the sweet hereafter, but I just can't get my head around that. Sorry. Personally, I find great comfort in knowing that this is all we get -- all of us -- all creatures great and small -- get the same shot. I like the fact that life is an even playing field. 'Kindness to all living things is the one true religion'. Not sure who this is attributed to (Buddha? perhaps?) but this seems to continue to work for me. It's simple, it's all-inclusive, it's easy. Anyone can do it.
