Very moving. And I can feel your overwhelming sense of dissonance. Both because you express it well and because I share it fully.

Do you feel like reading a book about death, Ema? I recommend The denial of death.

I've actually read it. Psychoanalysis at its best.... very thought-provoking. Though at times it was too technical for my liking and the sex parts in the book left me a bit confused, I can't deny that it is a great book.

Staring at the sun by Irvin Yalom and The Thing About Life Is That One Day You’ll Be Dead by David Shields are also books that I recommend.

Staring at the sun is now on my list of books to read :) How was your weekend, Ema?

Uneventful but good in a way. I stayed in most of the time, worked on a project and ate a god awful croissant.

How about yours? :)

Haha, from what I remember, you have some pretty damn good croissants and pastries there ;)

Mine was great, I was back in my hometown, I had a few beers in the evening and a "banichka" in the morning :)

Wonderfully written piece, especially given the subject matter. Though it's not a subject I particularly fear (because life has forced it into my awareness from an early age), it's still not a pleasant topic. And my understanding and acceptance of it is often dependent upon my mood.

Take care of your heart.

Though I have my doubts at times, I think the heart knows the way through the minefield.

Indeed :) She knows her way and how to heal herself even though it may seem impossible.

Thanks for your wonderful comment, Scott.

I mentioned this post in this week edition of The Library

Everytime I find myself obliged to read your posts more than once.
And enjoy it more everytime.
I remember at some points of my life I had that thought that I was "ready for death". At that point I felt immortal because death only meant a transition for me not an end.
I can't say that I still have that feeling but I hope I'll have it back one day.

Thank you, Hazem :)

Seems to me you had an expansion of consciousness and you should be grateful you were aware of it at that moment.

Sending ❤
