“If life must not be taken too seriously, then so neither must death.”
— Samuel Butler, “Dude who wrote a boatload of books, including Erewhon, which is pretty trippy Victorian stuff.”
“Death is a construct of life.”
— Me, “Feeling overly profound on a Saturday morning”
In three days, I will be gone.
Or, as Maude said, “I took the pills an hour ago.”
However, I’m not going anywhere, but in a sense going everywhere, which may be the same thing. Apologies, let me clarify that: I’m leaving Medium and going back to WordPress, but also leaving 100 Days of Words and Art with a new idea.
I’m working that idea out now, but it was something that occurred to me before I started this project and it came back in fuller force.
In other words, passion. Building. Exciting.
“For most of us, death is something that comes upon us. We cannot predict the day or the hour when we will die. Socrates, by contrast, died in complete control, and his death fitted perfectly with his life. If Socrates had been crucified, then the whole history of western philosophy and religion might have been different.” — Emily Wilson, The Death of Socrates
Maybe I wouldn’t have returned to the idea had I not doodled for 100 Days?
I don’t see the connection, but hey, that’s okay. Living is for the curious. If you’re of that bent, come over here and sit by me. I won’t bite. I don’t mean to be flip, but all new prospective projects get initial triage and protection.
For now, here’s… 100 Days of Words and Art for May 20, 2017 (actually, it’s above)
