my interior thoughts:
I'm getting sick of this mortality salience thing that keeps whomping me upside the head. That stupid song about "Do you realize everyone you know someday will die". I freakin' hate that song. And the hiphop version of Forever Young, too. Then again, I shouldn't fear death so much. Everything that I've ever feared that was a natural transition was totally fine, in hindsight. As the Japanese used to say, life is a bridge of dreams between the infinite darkness. And I'm just so happy right now, so happy with EVERYTHING, that I don't want to lose anything. That I'm grasping at immortality, wishing things could be this way forever. Seems like a lot of America is doing that now, what with the vampire craze and dystopian fiction and superheroes and antioxidants. If we weren't so prosperous, we wouldn't mind dying. It would be more of a relief, a rest. Life is pretty good, and I've got to cherish every second.

me: That's deep.
