What will there be when we're all dead? What does that mean? No one will see; no one will hear; no one will feel. What we perceive is not real. When we die, there will be nothing. And who will know there's nothing? "Nothing"'s just a word. Who keeps the score of what is and is not? "Is" is just a word.
And the truth is, I have not been overly impressed with this life. In my youth, I retained a certain happiness protected by the biological strength of my mind and perhaps by the newness of everything. But, now, it seems to me a grey, drizzly world.
Perhaps it is merely my poverty that makes it seem so. There is so much that money can buy: plays, leisure, knowledge, aesthetic beauty. Perhaps if I were rich, I could hide from the ugliness of the modern world.
And yet, now and then, I am able to fly above the smog of this depressing world and again find magic in a throbbing, living Now.
