Random Thoughts While Reading Headlines and Meditatiaons

It takes courage to read the headlines and still do what needs to be done, like get out of bed and stuff.
Life is a dress rehearsal for death.
The mystics say to "keep death always before you" --
but -- really?
We are living out
divine performance art,
Looking into the abyss too long burns your eyes.
I thought I was living in a romantic comedy.
This was not the turn I expected this story to take,
it's much too dark.
I'd like to opt out, please.
