The Story of My Death

"Part of the reason (we don’t like talking about death) is that death brings every part of who we are as humans into very sharp focus. And something like that can be overwhelming to consider.   When I’m thinking about my death, I’m thinking about my identity. I’m thinking about what I’ve accomplished. I’m thinking about who I’ve loved. I’m thinking about sex. I’m thinking about what I eat. I think about my body. I’m thinking about my work. I’m thinking about all parts of me because me as I know it will cease to exist at that point." -- Alua Arthur
