The prospect of one’s imminent death is ever-present.
It is one of the hardest things for us to contemplate.
It’s unavoidable, as far as we know.
Truth is, we don’t know how long we have in these bodies,
or even in these bodies in their present states of being.
Life is but a flicker.
Made longer by deeply noticing the colors of our loved ones irises.
We will not always have this skill.
