I just realized that what we’re going through is basically life. It’s what happens to us anyway. You get old, you die. Some die later, some die earlier, but you die. Some have preexisting conditions and then another condition comes along and kills them. Others die from the condition itself, whatever it is. But to sum up, you die.
Trump Flu has just reminded us. Reminded us that we’re not immortal. The young can’t accept that, for they are young. The old, which includes me (dang it), know it though we’ve been prevaricating about it. Only know we’ve been rudely reminded. Up till now we’ve been able to, well, fib about it. But with TF on the scene we can’t any more. That’s how I see things now, we’ve been reminded that life will have it’s way with us, and death comes at the end. The bell rings, the cry goes out, and the tumbrel rumbles down the street.
Hubris has met Nemesis, and Nemesis is laying the smack down.
