Death knows no color, no pain, no worry, no suffering. It is not tall or short. It is not concerned with money or power. It is eternal and calm. It is dark and cold. It begs your attention. You wonder when it will come knocking. You wonder if it will come in softly or kick down your door. You will not stop it. You will not bargain your way out of its hands. There is no escape from this end. Can you feel death creeping up behind you, calling you, beckoning you. Be slow to anger. Be soft and clear with your words. Be firm and solid in your thinking and doing. Live life to the fullest and be ready.
