    Tuesdays with Morrie
    This quote is from that book. I really like the quote and enjoyed the book.
    "The truth is, once you learn how to die, you learn how to live."
    ~ Mitch Albom

    Great book made into a film, also.
    Movie...whatever.

    Well spoken Clift
    Yes this thought has come for me too

    "That yes, mortality is inevitable and one never knows when or how so when we ask our self, why am I scared?"

    It can be quite a relief to know I don't have to worry about it.

    all the best, Leslie

    thanks Buzz
    Thanks Buzz for your long input...well...*sigh* You are amazing...see, I do catch myself thinking sometimes "I wish someone have told me, someone have prepared me that life DOES end"...yes, I am still very bitter about this issue! I still feel that I've been betrayed...or belied..defeated...or I dunno...but I feel that no one told me that life is about losing people...that sometimes it comes sooner than you expect it. I know it is not going to be easy for your family when your time comes, but sure it is awesome that you are open about mortality, and talk with them (every one of them)...maybe it will help them...I cannot tell. But I can tell what it is like when you were "not prepared" at all...and although I am proud of you about how you view things, and your life, but...don't be eager to bring it closer either. :) You have to be around here for a LOOOOONG while! :) We need you here! :)
    Please take care of yourself!

    My intention is to live almost forever.....
    I have just posted this for aid in adjusting to the reality of it all instead of worrying about something that could happen....I will leave this place scratching and clawing and I have no intentions of going anywhere for a longgg time. I just wanted to allow others (my family included) know the realities of this disease and life in general and to get the "heebie jeebies" out of talking about it. Its not meant to be a morbid post, just one to give another angle at what seems to be lifes greatest upset, and how if you have your "ducks in a row" its a little easier for most to handle. I'll be around for a long time, cause I gotta watch you grow old as well... :)...Love to you young lady, hang in there, I certainly will.......Clift (Buzz)
