few acknowledge it as life's eternal companion
life is not good
nor death bad
two identical pieces of gold on the same scale
one with two heads the other with two tails
death is as dear a friend to the old
as life is to the young
the young are closer to life and thier youthful invincibility
the old are more attune to death's kind whisper
...death is a beekeeper...
...and librarians are apes...
