"I don t really have anything..

"I don't really have anything enlightening to say, but
regarding your last entry, about death, I thought I might
give you a different perspective; there is a man named
Henry Rollins, one of the MANY things he does is Spoken
Word. he he told a story on one of his CDs about a boy he
met that had lukemia. Henry was one of his heroes and
really wanted to meet him, so they set it up. and Henry
talked about how this boy didn't like the nights, sleeping.
because if he was going to die, he didn't want to die like
that, he wanted to die with his eyes open, awake. aware. so
I guess this kid didn't have room to worry about pain, once
death is stareing you in the face, maybe your priorities
get shifted..." from Verger
