I don’t feel all that old, I really don’t, but I’m aware that my number of years grows like a stack of pancakes. My brain now digs out things I thought I’d forgotten, or wanted to forget.
A few days ago, I remembered something Grandma told me when I was a kid and had asked her where we go when we die.
“We’re like larvae,” she said. “When our spirits are ready, our bodies die and the spirits emerge like butterflies from their pupae. They then roam free across the universe.”
That wouldn’t be so bad, right? I’d like that.
You think I made that up? Bwahahahah…
