The future's uncertain and the end is always near - Jim Morrison Found out a high school class mate was killed in a car accident along with his wife, daughter, mother, and nephew. He and I weren't close and I haven't been in touch with him since 1993. It's been 4 days since I'd heard the news and I still don't know how to process it.
What does this song have to do with the way I feel? I don't know. What I do realize is - now a little better than before - that this thing called life can end in a flash. All the planning, all the wishing and hoping, all the fretting, all the worrying...all in a second. Fine, I should have a better Monday now that I know this 'truth.' But guess what, I'll probably keep on with my daily life filled with the silly little things that help me make it unnecessarily complicated. I'll convince myself that I'm meant to do more for the world but am not getting that necessary break.
One shouldn't start the week this way but life and death is out to get us all...all the time. Hard to tell which one is more scary and easier to run from.
