I was wondering. Has anyone ever just thought really really REALLY hard about what's going to take place, during, and after your death? Probably isn't the healthiest thing to think about, but it has occured. I mean, think about it. You're going to die... I'm going to die. At the snap of a finger, life can end, just like that. One second your drinking an espresso, then the next, your lying on the floor after a fatal heart-attack.
I mean, it's not scarey, it's just weird. Some day, you're going to be 6 feet under, or blowing in the wind. Possibly dumped into a sewer, who knows. But your children will remember you right? But what about that? Great grand kids? Personally, I only knew one great grandmother, but can't remember if I felt anything afer her death; I was so young. I don't remember anybody after her, are they forgotten after they're kin has moved on? It's weird to think about, We'll be forgotten. Unless, you were president or something, but even so, that will pass. Names only go so far, but actions go farther?
Chances of putting my name to action is slim, I just don't have the patience to do so. We WILL be forgotten, when we're dead. And that DOES scare me.
There were times when I was a little boy, when I thought about this. The first feuneral I remember attending, was the scariest. I knew other things died, if you smashed them, or smacked them, such as insects. I knew my dog wouldn't be forever, but people. I didn't know until I went to that feuneral. Eating or even stepping in the same room as a courpse always concerned me. Especially if it were a young relative/friend. But it is inevitable, I will attend another, then another. Then, my own?
I know it sounds "emo", but whatever. It's just a thought, and it's like anyother. Well, probably not like most, but it's a thought nontheless. I think this is one of my problems, I speak my mind too much in these damn forums, does this rouse a concern? My rambling and babbles? That's another thing that strikes me as odd. People can jokingly talk about killing other people and not get in trouble, but when someone just spreaks freely and about nothing in particular, they always seem to catch crap about it. Heh.

In lighter news, I won $30 on a scratch card. Awsome huh?!

Dude, i just drank some espresso...:shk: now i'm more paranoid than usual.

Yes, i'm aware of my mortality everyday but just a fleeting thought, nothing i dwell on. While i'm alive i have to think about life. All its ups and downs and the everyday BS we encounter. One cant spend their lives wondering about death because that wouldnt be living.

I guess your right. I try not to think about it, but once in a while the thought just occurs. Unlike yesterday, I just shrug my shoulders to the thought right now. I guess it depends on the mood. Thanks for the few powerful words of wisdom.
