Thoughts on death as a 24 year old

“Life is a gift. Why is it sad that it will only last a certain length, that we’re ‘going to die’? Do you watch a movie, read a book, or listen to music, thinking the whole time how sad it is that it will soon be over? In fact, the shorter it lasts the closer we get to the instant, the spark, the mystery.”

– Randy Hostetler, June 1987
