I think about death every day. It helps me take the long view of things. I really appreciated Paul's passage. It was timely in that I have a draft email sitting in a folder for the last few days, deciding if I should send it or not. I decided to let it "sit" and see what unfolded as the days passed. I will not be sending it. Sometimes waiting...sitting, as Paul put it, gives us a chance to take the long view rather than the short view, which may include reacting rather than responding.
A favorite quote by Tagore's: Death is not extinguishing the Light. It is putting out the Lamp because the Dawn has come."
