Deathly Life

When I first bookmarked this post for a reblog, l never knew l will have a good reason to do so. Yes, Dr. Maya Angelou left us days ago and going by her words, she lived fully and was prepared to die anytime. I am really trying to make the best of whatever time l have left for this life is deadly. As I read somewhere; “Twere never one escaped it yet”

Musings from a Dreamer

The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.

    This post made me feel emotional. I lost a very close friend (more like a sister) on Wednesday to cancer. It’s been a sad time for the whole family. She was well known and liked by all. She was a woman who wasn’t afraid to show her emotions.She hugged and kissed whoever she wanted to show affection.

    So, like you said, we need to make the best of whatever time we have left here on earth.

    Thanks for sharing. 🙂 Have a great weekend.
