He: Everyone is afraid to die.
She: Not me.
This is a short conversation I had with a co-worker more than 25 years ago. I don't know if he believed me. He probably thought I was crazy. Or delusional.
A conversation that I've never had with anyone, except you, here:
Other he: Do we just stop existing? Do we go to Hell?
She: Can't you feel that?
Other he: What?
She: The love of God reaching for us.
Other he: Even me?
She: Yes, you too.
Other he: No. I don't feel anything.
She: It feels great.
Do you fear death? Do you know God? Can you feel Him reaching for you?
Happy Hannukah to my friends who celebrate.
To those who don't, Happy Hannukah anyway.
