Time: Demon or Saint
By BR Chitwood
Like calendar pages flipping by in an old movie, taking our days, weeks, months, years, leaving us with our victories, our regrets, and our sadness.
The shaving mirror reflects the sunken eyes above the bags, and, below a pitted chin flops a tubular second chin. Do heaven or hell reflect these anomalies? Or is the ugly, bloated mirror image the hell that will be taken over time from the crypt, each ounce, each pound of the dead flesh decaying over the deep-dark slow-passing days of the seasons?
William Shakespeare on his stages wrestled with the question of life after death. Hamlet thought that life after death considerations left suicides less viable, that the vicissitudes of life after death were more perilous than living. The question of death bringing total darkness or, literally, a living hell, was a rather large theme in Shakespeare’s lexicon of themes.
Well, in the day, it did take suicide off the table. (a devilishTee-hee).
So, where am I going with this?
Well, hell, I knew a few minutes ago.
Tell me what you think…but, please, be nice. (Like, me!)
Me, too… I wanted to stay young forever. Now, well, maybe three or four more books is all I shall be able to produce…
AND…the other twenty-one books ARE DOING SO WELL! Yeah, RIGHT!
I have got to eat some ice cream and get this bad taste out of my mouth…
Forgive my Teaser…
