In today’s Non Sequitur cartoon, we’re up in heaven where two winged, haloed characters are looking at The Old Bearded Man. The Man has a lighting bolt in his hand and a cloud of frustration over his head.
“Uh-oh… he’s got that thinning-the-herd look again…” says one to the other.
Sometimes, it seems like sudden tragic death must be like that – certainly a bolt out of the blue. The only thing to do is live each day as deeply and fully as you can, and love as much as possible. That’s my take on it. When death lives at your house, you make the most of life every day.
