Iō Saturnalia! As you may remember, at the start of the month i announced that to celebrate the holiday season, you could submit anything you wanted to my website and i’d put it up. I’m pleased to say several people took up my offer, and i’ll be putting them up daily starting today. Our somber first submission comes from a reader by the nom de plume of Ræl H. Bishop. Enjoy.
I think I might’ve finally accepted the fact that I’m gonna die some day.
A story has no purpose if it doesn’t have an end.
We will all die some day and never again be able to feel the sun shine on our faces, shielding us with warmth.
But it’s that very fact that lets us enjoy the sun for his bountiful rays.
Be here, now.
For even the sun will burn out one day and never shine again.
