790. a question about life

a recent discussion question at blogcatalog asked fellow bloggers to define "life" (answering that over a bowl of cornflakes is a great way to start the day).
so i was moved to be the usual wiseguy i tend to be, but instead was struck by this sudden awareness of my existance wedged between two bookcovers on a book shelf that extends in either direction as far as the eye can see.
and i thought, and thought some more, and landed on this.

"my particular life feels like a very brief respite between an existance i don't remember but one i am certain to return to in rather short order. and in the spirit of full disclosure, my respite skills need plenty of work."

humans are stupid. Life just happens get over yourselves. one day you not here then you are and then you not, life is the bit between the 2 points or is it.
