death by paper cut

{November 24, 2005}   the only thing in life set in stone is your tomb

i received the award for outstanding contribution for the individual category during the end-of-year prize giving ceremony last week.

my credentials and contributions were read out as i walked up the stage to collect the certificate.

hearing about myself in the third person was an out of body experience.

in fact, it sounded like a eulogy, and i was attending my own funeral. making the round trip to the stage and back was like paying the last respects at the coffin during a wake.

morbid but not tragic.

i was actually happy at the prospect that my loved ones would gather at my funeral and were connected by the essense of me.

have you ever been asked the question, “what would you do if you had twenty-four hours to live?”

i rather think that we’re already dead and living on borrowed time. each day is not your last, each day is extended grace.
