Mortality

 

“Life is for the living.
Death is for the dead.
Let life be like music.
And death a note unsaid.”
Langston Hughes

 

They say cats actually purr as death takes them. That seems a healthy attitude to have. Me, I get apprehensive just thinking about my own mortality. I can’t imagine non existence any more than I can imagine some noncorporeal existence, or reincarnation. I can’t even imagine my final moments, but I’m sure I won’t be purring.

  2. Unless you live to be really old and go bat shit crazy and end up thinking you are a cat (cat shit crazy?) then yoy might be purring but I'm not sure that would be an entirely healthy attitude to have, dying or not
