Shall we speak of what has been described by Cleopatra as "the stroke which hurts and is desired"? Shall we wonder at Francis Bacon's feeling "like one that is wounded in hot blood, who, for the time, scarce feels the hurt"?

Alas, proof of human concupiscence, almost a month passed Feb. 14, is the number of views this will get!!!

I am astounded, Friends, at how these tributes to death are so readily, if morbidly, available to the curious.

Happy Memorial Day, when the "Battle With Self" is finally won!

New Testimony(?): Death is the Great Equalizer, and graveyards are trans-gendered.

New England Quaker, Bradford Smith, who in 1963 was diagnosed with terminal cancer at the age of 54: "No one has reached maturity until he has learned to face the fact of his own death and shaped his way of living accordingly."
