Margaret died hoy

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« Margaret died today.  Mother of an amigo’s sposa.  Often modern medicine is on an unavoidable collision course with the natural process of dying.  As Woody Allen has given us again and again over decades of entertainment – each and every living person is in the process of dying, and Woody features this theme in ways that accents my obsession with death and in ways that has me smiling now.  From my experience the sound of colliding cars recreated by Hollywood matches closely to the authentic sound, but the sound of someone dying in a hospital can be so personal that each witness is probably logging his or her own sound bite.  The anxiety over the electronic alarm that seems to reach deaf ears of competent medical professionals is a memorable moment for me, and on the occasion of Margaret’s death my peripheral spectator’s seat gave me a sense nature humbled people to tame modern medicine into a peaceful surrender, and news of Margaret’s death via text received at daybreak was soothing.  While stories of family members forgetting their manners and trying to manipulate Margaret’s dying preferences to match preference of the surviving were passed to me they seemed to resolve as nature and God intended.  To the memory of Margaret amen alleluia assalam alaikum mazel tov. »» about me  201-490-9659  Mom angry  nearlincoln@hotmail.com  contact us
