Who knows .. I hope not.  But I don't think about it .. I prefer to think about living a long life.

Not really! I'm so busy to think about it! I have many things to do and my focus is on my life and the path ahead of me! When death comes, i won't be able to do anything about it! So i won't bother to waste time on wondering!

No way ! I still have some important things to do in life yet ! I plan on being around for a while yet.

I sure hope not! I still haven't been to the beach and I fully intend to visit before I die.

I have no idea...however, if you go through life worrying about when you're going to die, you don't actually live.

Gosh I hope not, since this is the one life I have.

I try to eat healthy and I am getting fit, but situations and circumstances have a way of mixing in negative impacting experiences along with the positive ones.

Dear May Apple,

Well I do WANT to die as soon as possible...but that is because death is one of the great adventures of life, perhaps the greatest of all.

What I am NOT going to do is hurry things along...because for the full experience of death you need to give your all and everything to life.

So that is what I am working on now, putting everything I have onto this difficult but fascinating wild card called life...enjoying it as much as possible, seeing it through to its beautiful and natural conclusion.

Oh, yes! Just love that...
But, here is another quote I am contemplating now...

"Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them."
~ Henry David Thoreau

Well, no desperation for me, and no song unsung...doing all my burning, raging and raving right now, not to wait for the dying of the light...

Plus, the Dylan poem simply the most exquisite example of the villanelle poetic form ever, just so delightful.

Very fond of Thoreau. I also liked Robert Louis Stevenson;s Requiem which horrified me when I first read it at age 9 but which makes a lot of sense now. "Glad did I live and I gladly die, and I lay me down with a will."

Yes, age 9 is a bit young for RLS Requiem...
I was checking Internet to see if Thoreau might have been atheist, but if so he seems not to have made a big deal out of it...

My death isn't something I think about at all. I am more concerned about my parents and a friend going through cancer to worry about me.
