Ramblings on death

If death meant just leaving the stage long enough to change costume and come back as a new character...Would you slow down? Or speed up? ~Chuck Palahniuk

I wanted to die once.  No changing costumes.  No coming back.  I was all alone.  And the world is a very scary place when you are all alone.

Judith Kitchen once wrote, "...tell her there are many ways to die and each is lonely."

I don't want to be lonely.
I don't want to die.  Not today.
So Chuck, I choose to slow down.  
To savor each kiss, each laugh, each love.

Because we all die.  And it will be lonely.
