Clarification for More Thoughts On Life
Several friends contacted me about yesterday’s blog, More Thoughts on Life.
They asked why I wanted to die in the Fall, and wanted me to clarify the ambiguity of “leaving the world laughing.”
I’m sure I have blogged before about why I want to die in the Fall. I have a habit of repeating myself since my memory retired. Did I mention that I have a habit of repeating myself? But I can justify this incidence of repetition because my friends asked.
Besides being the opposite of Spring, in which I was born, Fall is beautiful with the leaves changing colors. But the beauty of the changing colors is because the trees are preparing for Winter, and have cut off chlorophyll going to the leaves. The leaves are changing colors while they are dying. What a glorious death!
I doubt whether I will turn such beautiful colors as I die, but I can pretend to do so by dying in the Fall.
. . . I will leave this world laughing.
As for the ambiguity in the ending of yesterday’s blog my friends asked, “Will you make the world laugh before you die, or will you be laughing when you die?”
My reply? “Yes.”
