Our death is always with us. We feel that we are escaping him every day we live, but actually he just gives us some slack. The faster we are trying to escape the less we have time for the way itself. We are missing the landscape along the way.
Therefore we should trust our best friend, the one we know the longest: Death gives us advice for life. Death can either linger above us like the sword of Damocles or give us directions throughout our life.
