Why You Should Think More About Death

Earlier this week, I wrote about the meaning behind the upcoming Día de los Muertos holiday. To further explore the theme of death and transcendence, I bare a part of my soul to give you a glimpse into the inner workings of my mind with this short story. The story is from the viewpoint of a 6 year old me, doing what Alan Watts urges us to do in the above quote, acknowledging immortality. After all, I tend to prefer abstract thought and find philosophical concepts and questions highly appealing. Before you read on, understand that I now live a fuller life because of this specific dark and somewhat morbid contemplation. Ever since this incident, I have been and still am on a quest to find meaning and lead a life full of purpose with the goal of leaving behind a memorable legacy.
