death is not marketable - except to florists and stonemasons

you would think that after centuries of leavings that society might have figured it out

but it remains as precarious and unspeakable as ever

it’s not something to rush into

it waits at the gate, silent but almost conversing

Yeah I am in my later years. The reality of it has knocked on my door. When I try to speak about how I want things laid out my words fall on deaf ears. Guess I will have to write it down so my remains remain where I want them.

In western society we have a highly developed grieving process. For most people it is reasonably limited, but others can never seem to move on. The husband of my wife's cousin put his life on hold when his wife died 15 years ago. Everything of hers in the house is where she left it.
