     I will be age 81 in the month.  I now think more of the death and that within several years I will no longer be.  I don't fear death. Right now I anticipate I will miss life but death is inevitable and is okay.  Thich Nhat Hanh's idea of breathing in peace and breathing out a smile has been helpful to me. I don't seem to invite fears but I don't push them away.  I have learned over the last 20 years to know very little and that most fears are illusions. Most of what I think and do seems to me to be unconscious, yet  breathing in peace and exhaling with a smile is often conscious and very worthwhile for me.    Warm and kind regards to everyone
