“I am not afraid of dying, I just don’t want to be there when it happens.” ~ Woody Allen
I cracked up with this gem of Woody’s. I can so relate to his neuroses! I feel the exact same way. I’m not afraid of dying. I’ve often wished for it. However, potential horror, blood & gore, are not for me. Obviously I am not afraid to admit that I have a morbid fascination with, well, morbidity. Who, what, when, where, why, how??
There was a great American Masters documentary on Woody that I saw on PBS. It’s definitely worth a watch, if you’re as intrigued by him as me. I wasn’t quite sure why until I watched the documentary. Bob Hope? Fellini? Now those are some role models. Here’s the trailer:
Thanks to my friend, Dave, who posted this quote on Facebook today, thus inspiring me to seize the moment to sit & write a spell:
“Death is Nature’s way of saying, ‘Check please’. There you are sitting at home & Death walks up & says, ‘Your table’s ready. There’s some coffee in the embalming room but it tastes funny.'” ~ Robin Williams
Robin is one of my other-worldly favorites! He’s also a poster child for ’embracing the crazy’! Ha! Our imminent demise should be a daily reminder to live life to the absolute full, and make serious fun while doing so! BwaaaHaaaHaaa!
