    angelicsage,
    Great write......
    "Plan as though you will die soon but also as though you will live forever and alwayz do good for the soul and it's onward journey"
    enjoyed this much...it calls us to reflect on the realities of life and the inevitability of death...and to prepare as best we can......of death we never know when, where or how.......

    Peace and Blessings

    Well, sage, no we never know really which breath will be our last. And to talk of death or plans for it, makes most uncomfortable. I loved the way you talked about living life for all those things that are meaningful, but often over looked. Deeply written from your heart.

    I am somewhat speechless...
    I can only :bowdown: to your wisdom and insight. This touched my heart in a way that makes me rethink my life and my death. This poem was awesome all in itself...thanks for shining the light.

    I also worry about the people of this world, angelicsage. This is so timely and so poignant. And as always, sister, so beautifully written. You are an inspiration and a gift. :heart:
