kerravonsen: What is essential is invisible to the eye (essential-invisible)
[personal profile] kerravonsen
I've been pondering...

If I knew that I had only one day to live...
I would ring up my closest friends and family to say goodbye.

If I knew that I had only one month to live...
I would ask my sister-in-law to organize a family reunion.

If I knew that I had only six months to live...
I would take my long-service leave and visit friends and family while I still could. Then I'd ask brother #2 to come and look after me. And I would make beautiful things, while I still could.

If I knew that I had only a year to live...
I'd probably do the same thing as for the "six months to live" scenario.




That was an unexpectedly enlightening exersize in figuring out where my true desires lie.

Do the family reunion now.

That *is* a great prompt. I haven't done much thinking along those lines over the past few years; this is poking me to revisit it.
