Many of my mother’s friends have died in recent years. I feel for her and the science fiction movie she now stars in. Who disappears next?

Can’t remember ever being unafraid of dying. Can one die without clawing and begging at life to keep you alive?

Sure admire the people who move to nunneries, monasteries even caves – trying to live philosophies that might short circuit the human condition, namely the constantly forgetting at any moment you will be no more.
