Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

The Opinuary Column



The Opinion "Better late than never" has died, none too early for most but long after the fact for a good many others. It leaves behind everything that wasn't in front of it. Preceded in death by the Opinion "Time is on my side" (which turned out to be not the case) it is now in the magnificent and truly buff arms of the Lord. He's a big guy to begin with, but my goodness, not to belabor the point, but those arms of His are epic, even if He can no longer reach into our world and move the players around like He used to. Sigh.

There will be a Celebration of Life held some time after the burial. Long after. Late, even. In the meantime the family asks that you might just consider showing up at your appointments on time, and try not to destroy whatever is left in the Great Now that is keeping you alive. Oxygen and water that wont kill you come to mind. Food, too. Like it or not, late may just be all that we have, even if it's not much better than not at all. Or words to that effect.

The Opinuary Column runs most Fridays at Jesus' General.
