Being and not being - all this distraction from the one inevitable fact of life: we all die. And whether or not we continue on into some great hereafter, the fact is we won’t be here. We won’t be who we are now. Sure, we may live on in the memory of others, but as Woody Allen so eloquently put it, “I don’t want to live on in my work. I want to live on in my apartment.” It’s not something that depresses me – yet. I still have a lot of distraction ahead. But one day, distraction won’t cut it.
