When’s Your Last Day?

Nature abhors waste, and the spirit or soul is beautiful and special. I equate death to transitions that waste nothing worth keeping, much as a drop of water can become a part of vapor, snow, steam, a cloud, sleet, hail, a river, or a mighty ocean. Each has substance, beauty, value, and power in its many forms and connections. It’s inconceivable to me that the human spirit/soul (and likely those of other creatures) would be valued as less worthy of great transitions than a drop of water.
With Love,
