(s)train of thought

Sometimes it seems like everything is upside down, and back to front.

We are told that in the beginning there was darkness, until god created light. At our own beginnings there is darkness - in the womb there is no light. Only the sleazy red light of our fathers late night wishes. As we emerge we are thrust into bright white clinical cold reality.

By those who have come close (but not close enough) we are told that death is seen as a light at the end of a tunnel - beckoning. Which sounds strangely similar to being born.


We are confronted with a vision of death from the very start. For most of us it takes about seventy years to realise this.

This is very thought provoking...... It seems we really do spend our entire lives waiting for the light at the end of the tunnel - I hope its worth the wait.
