Re: So, old people on this board, how do you deal knowing you will die soon?
i'm at the age where i know the answers to sir paul's questions in "when i'm 64" and i can see around very few family members ahead of me in the queue formed for the mortality wall.
hmmm..time with family and telling them i love them is all important. i couldn't care less about being remembered by anyone but them. i tend to reread, rewatch and relisten more to old favorites, knowing how much i'm going to miss them. i'm hoping my mind remains somewhat intact until my last breath. as i did with krono's earlier post, i laugh every chance i get and hope to get a chance to laugh one last time, when i see if the universe has played a big joke on us all.
i'm reminded of what "kid" (thomas mitchell) says at the end of recently watched "only angels have wings". knowing that he's about to die, he wants everyone to leave the room, including best friend geoff (cary grant). kid says he's not afraid, but since he's about to try something new, he doesn't want to mess it up in front of anyone.
