Proceed Carefully, Very Carefully!

Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December; And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.

—Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849)

The Heat Death and other Such Carbon Foot Prints

Proceed Carefully, Very Carefully!

Inspired by Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849)'s quote, "Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December; And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor." The titled responsion is "Proceed Carefully, Very Carefully!". What follows is subject to revision, do you have any suggestions?

Universal Place

Inspired by Georg Büchner (1813-1837)'s quote, "Death is the most blessed dream". The titled responsion is an Absoluted destination for all life everywhere.

The most blessed dream of all is to die with a smile on our faces. For those who are in pain from disease and suffering, they also dream of dying with a smile. No one can deny the fact that death is the most blessed and the most miserable dream of all.

But if you believe that death is the most blessed dream, then you will live and enjoy the time that is left for you. You will also love your life. No doubt, death is not that happy but once you see death as the most blessed dream of all, then you will accept it without regrets.

Think of it and see how beautiful your life would be after death. Who will guide you in your life after you pass away? Who will be there in front of you when you die? What will be your funeral service like? How long will your body lie in the mortuary?

Life does not have to be a painful experience. When you know that there is nothing in life that is perfect, you will be happy and you will be able to see that you have reached the perfect life you deserve to have. Death does not have to be the most blessed dream in life because you will still be able to live the life that you deserve to have. If you want to live the most blessed life then you should live it with a smile.

Travel Bans Beget...?

Inspired by Eudora Welty (1909-2001)'s quote, "Through travel I first became aware of the outside world; it was through travel that I found my own introspective way into becoming a part of it". The titled responsion is relational at best, practically speaking there is no difference between physically travelling and not physically travelling except for the space between the two. Do you see what I am saying?

Eudora Welty - planksip

From the necessity of introspection, it doesn't logically follow that travel is sui generis. Shakespeare never visited Venice or Verona. Contemporary parlance assigns Vernona as vernacular for a know-it-all woman with the residue of pejorative throughout.

Sentenced to Inferno

This graduated role reversal of humility is an act worth thinking about. Revolutions take place despite our preoccupation with initiation. As the world turns, living is perpetual, limited to our species in language only.

F-You God!

Inspired by Bill Maher's quote, "Suicide is man's way of telling God, 'You can't fire me - I quit.'". Today's titled responsion is so self-similar it's repeatable.
