Prepared to Live

The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.
-Mark Twain

  1. Our society and culture also have such an unhealthy, separatist view of death. It is, after all, a part of life – one that all of us will meet one day. I do think it’s totally natural for humans to fear death, but maybe if we discussed it more openly and regularly, widely participated in rituals such as Mexico’s Dia de los Muertos, that fear would lessen into a more integrated vision.

    1. yes- tLp: I agree.
      I posted this because I’ve been asked to play more wakes, and funeral gatherings than ever before. I love offering music this way- it’s just another common thread through everything we all experience. Thank you…
