@ehBeth,
And so good to 'see' you ehBeth! I hope you and yours are well and happy!

This subject of time, mortality, death --the whole idea of our eventual annihilation-- is never completely out of my thoughts.
I have been trying for years to wrap my mind around it. I suppose though, that it's not as much about UNDERSTANDING our death as it is ACCEPTING it.
No one gets a pass eh?
