A Simple Observation
The alternative to life is not death, no more so than the alternative to war is peace. An alternative to war is throwing tomatoes at each other until one side runs out. An alternative to peace is growing a lot of tomatoes. But life has no alternative. Nor does death. They are what they are. And the sooner I catch on to this rather simple, if not elegant, observation, the sooner I'll start living like I mean it.
