How to Die Well


First, live

live live live live live

Be kind

think

do

move

Be afraid but do it anyway

learn

teach

question

make mistakes

Let your heart get broken

go balls to the wall with your hair on fire

or lay gently with the universe reclining in your hair

No matter how long or short

you occupy this Earth

Dying well

comes from living well
