Being OK with Death
Just thinking briefly about my skull's run-in with a patch of ice last week... Things happen, we're always taking little risks... It's true—I have to acknowledge it—I could've died that night. In some alternate universe, I've been dead for a week now.
And you know what? That's OK. If I would've died that night, I would have died very, very happy, doing something I love, surrounded by great friends.
It would have been very hard on everyone still around, of course. And hardest on Solange, who might have beat herself up for not being here, even though we know exactly why we're apart now.
I'm glad I'm in this universe, still chipping away at all my life's goals. Gives one cause for pause, though, eh?
