Will they never stop?

Will the “grim reaper” never take a holiday.

Who can imagine the building you are in suddenly collapsing, crashing to the ground, a pile of rubble, the people in it crushed to death?

No one, least of all me.

Luck, you have to have luck.

Most of us have escaped certain death by sheer luck.

Is there some power that watches over us, that guides our lives?

I often wonder…or is it chance?

In my youth, I was an atheist.

I no longer am….

I no longer “ponder” and think of unanswerable questions at the age of 107.

I have lived a long life, a productive one….

No one lives forever nor do they want to.

As long as I can get pleasure out of life (and I do), I’m thankful.

So, in conclusion, I wish my readers the luck I’ve had.

We only get “one go around.”

Make the most of it.
