Life is Short

If you had only 24 hours before doomsday, what would you do?

Would you try to see as many friends and family members as possible?
Go shopping to use up all your money?
Eat and drink as much as you can?

Say whatever you have long wanted to say?
Reveal secrets?
Bank robbery?
Murder?
Suicide?
Escape to nowhere?

Tick tack, tick tack.
What else, what else?

Well.
I would do nothing special.

A certain amount of time will be taken for sleep and a couple of hours for meals. If I have work, I would work. Otherwise I would stay home. Study may not be an option, because it is just too prospective for the day. If somebody visits me, I would be happy to spend some hours together. If my loved ones are available, I would be with them for the remaining time. However it would be also totally fine with me to spend the day all by myself. No TV, no movies, no music please. I would enjoy several cups of tea, look outside, and imagine what “the end” would be like.

Will everything freeze all of a sudden?
Burn out?
Vanish?
I am always ready to welcome it. Very, very calmly.

Life is short.
Life is short.
I know that.
