Someone close died last week, after a long and difficult illness. What can one say? It happens to all of us, but the reality of it is not just some abstract concept. One day, you can talk to someone, and the next day they are gone.
One day, our shiny civilization is humming along, and one day, it may not be so shiny. One day you can talk to people around the world in an instant, and one day, you may not. The bit from Ecclesiastes mentioned a while ago still rings true.
“Vanity of vanities, all is vanity.”
Still, we eat, we drink, we make merry. We are an odd species, to say the least. Curious to know how the future will look upon all of this, just as many of us wonder how people will look upon us when we are gone (individually).
