We will pray for you, if that’s any consolation. You ask “is there any way to avoid death?” In the long run, I’m afraid not. We are all on that journey, like cattle in a chute. We hear the frantic mooing of those who are ahead of us on the one-way path to the slaughterhouse. There, a man who holds a large hammer stands poised to strike.
What, you have other plans? Sorry, they amount to no more than wishful thinking. This world is a small part of a much greater cosmos. Will you persist? I can’t promise anything. To tell the truth, I don’t know what awaits us. I only know we’re in the chute. You can moo and kick the walls all the like, but you will move forward. See, you just took another step!

Nice soothing message my friend … sheesh. What brought this on?
Like a cold wind across our necks. That moment of realization is out there. That moment of my death exists as surely as this one. One way to live big, is to regularly visit that moment so you recognize your old friend when it arrives.
Btw, Brother Will Reid has a walk on scene in a perfectly awful Wes Craven movie.
