100 Words

I have said that I am not afraid of the idea of Death, hoping only that I encounter it without pain.

I am not a believer in a conscious afterlife. I expect that the best to be hoped for is that what physical elements that remain will blend into the earth and fertilize the future, but the non-material essence that was me, will become the nothing it was before I was conceived.

Nothing is a difficult concept to conceive. Except for moments of sleep, we do not experience it. An inability to understand nothingness is the womb of gods.


About elrondsilvermaul

I never know what to say about myself. I let what I write try to speak as to who I am. I can only add, here, that I am 72, live in a nursing home, am twenty years a cancer survivor, and identify as a gay male. I intend to use this blog as storage for poems? written over the long years (and still being written). This does not preclude other uses.
