When Death Comes


In fact, it’s Dougie’s growing conviction that the greatest flaw of the species is its overwhelming tendency to mistake agreement for truth. Single biggest influence on what a body will or will not believe is what nearby bodies broadcast over the public band. Get three people in the room and they will decide that the law of gravity is evil and should be rescinded because one of their uncles got shit-faced and fell off the roof.

“Wash your hands. Don’t be complacent. This will be going on for a while. You have to be disciplined.”

Must be accomplished with mindfulness
And a gentle hand;
Any other way misses the point.



“They also surf who only stand on waves.”
