Not exactly "death". I've actually been thinking a lot about LIFE and how I want to live mine (a year and a half of a pandemic will do that to you, too!)
And for some reason, yesterday, that parable about the grasshopper and the ants popped into my mind.
You know the one….where the grasshopper is singing and dancing all summer long while the ants work hard every day to store food for the winter.
Then, when the winter comes, the ants are warm and well-fed, and the grasshopper, well….the grasshopper…is dead.
