DeathI don't sleep too well, so I lie there, sometimes for hours, and I always end up thinking about death.
Now, I don't want you to think of it as being morbid. It's more that the word comes to me as a ... how should I say it? ... as a mantra.
Also, please don't think that I want to die. That's not it at all.
Rather...it's that I don't want to be taken by surprise.--- From Rock Gardening in the Ukraine
