RE: Overcoming fear of death
I didn't make my peace with inevitable death until I looked it in the face, a few times, in my 20s ... an angry husband who tried to murder me ... running into burning buildings for a living ... an auto accident ...

Don't get me wrong, I want to live a long life -- I'm 48 as of this writing -- and I want to be a grandfather, I want to see once more springtime bouncing happy on my knee ... but if my number comes up tomorrow, I'll go knowing that I've been the best man I can be, I've raised a fine son into the fullness of manhood, and that every day I've had was good or bad dependent mostly on me.

Perhaps because indulging that fear can prevent one from living one's life? I don't reckon death is any better than playing for a tie, y'know?

Playing it safe is, well, playing it safe.

My dad's brother died at age 45. I was 4 years old. I had only met him when he was staying with us for a week when I was 3. I remember him clear as day - he was sweet and kind and would play with me by the hour. I even kind of recall what he looked like.
