Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it

Daily Journal, Dark, Humor, Light, Stoicism


As a neophyte stoic I fantasize about my own death quite regularly. Wait… does that sound morbid? I suppose it could also come across as suicidal. Really, I am none of those things, in fact, other than I think life is largely pointless I am quite a cheerful mf’er. I guess I just appreciate that the end point of life is death and I’d like my death to be done right. If possible. I mean I realize we often don’t get a say in these things. That’s why its important to prep (and consider) these things waaay in advance.


In any event. THIS… has now been added to list of possible end-game scenarios. Ha ha.

      Ha ha. I’ll certainly die trying. Wait… a second…

    I think a lot about my funeral. Being dead is an unfortunate requirement.

      Haven’t we already established the three K’s (Kattegat, Kayak, Kerosene) for your funeral?

        Yeah, that is the new plan.
        Which, honestly, is just a more elaborate version of the old one where I wanted to be cremated BEFORE the funeral, then thrown into the sea or spread across a forest.

        When in doubt, make things more complicated. Thats my motto. 😀

        Hey, it’s a once in a lifetime (…or is it?) party!
        Go big or go home, as they say.
