Love

Love. You can learn all the math in the ‘Verse, but you take a boat in the air that you don’t love, she’ll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps her in the air when she oughta fall down, tells you she’s hurtin’ ‘fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Death

She asked me how I wanted my body prepared. I didn’t have an answer. Here’s hers:

“I want my body to be cremated. Have my ashes brought to the cliff side and thrown into the air where they’ll scattered among the earth and water.”

“Have you ever seen a dead butterfly? They know when their time is ending and find a quiet place for themselves of their choosing and lay their until they pass.”

Decisions in life, including death, should be made consciously. I believe that life isn’t measured in time, it’s measured in meaning.
