I’ve been thinking a lot about dying lately…regardless of how this particular thing works out, I will be dying and so will you. So will everyone here. And that’s what I want to explore. We’re all hurtling towards death. Yet here we are for the moment, alive. Each of us knowing we’re gonna die. And each of us secretly believing we won’t.
