Looking at Death

Francois De La Rochefoucauld was so right when he said, “Neither the sun nor death can be looked at with a steady eye.” (Thank you Ed K for sharing this)

Maybe that's good? 

Forces us to avert our gaze from the abyss and stare back, wide eyed, into the living moment. 

Forces us to remember the finite nature of the time we have in an infinite world and the need not to waste a moment of it.

I promise to be more upbeat in my next posting. This memorial service and the closing of a 40 year old loop is a heavier anchor than I realized.
