I 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.'s that I don't want to be taken by surprise.
