Man, oh man.

So there we were, out in the garden…

happily playing with our little monster…

when all of a sudden this huge motherfucking stone slab comes down from the roof with a crash, hitting the ground where we had both been standing not too long ago, making a huge hole in the ground.

That’s how easily you can go. From one moment to the next, your life can be ruined by a piece of masonry falling from the sky.

I’m thankful that ours wasn’t.

    For everybody’s own questioning

    ¿What happens to us when we die?
    ¿Why we die?

    also:
    ¿Thankful, to who?

    Also, nothing that i’ve said on the first comment is sarcasm or any attempt to make fun of anybody

    What is written here is for those who may think something like that.

    If not, well, this comment has no purpose at all.

  3. ¿What happens to us when we die?

    Good question. Since no-one’s ever come back to tell us, who knows? It’s certainly pretty permanent. Maybe some part of us survives, maybe not. But it’s sure hard to tell.

    ¿Why we die?

    Because our bodies, like all machines, can break. There’s nothing mysterious about it.

    ¿Thankful, to who?

    Well, not to God, I think. After all, if he controls everything, there was no need to make that stone fall, right? I mean, it makes no sense to be grateful to someone for being saved from something that that person caused.
    Maybe thankful means appreciative; glad that, unlike others, we escaped this fate.
    If I’m grateful to a specific person, it’s Coyote.

    “Well, not to God, I think. After all, if he controls everything, there was no need to make that stone fall, right? I mean, it makes no sense to be grateful to someone for being saved from something that that person caused.”

    Maybe it was to make you aware.

    Both, good or bad things, that happen to us, may do something good in our lives, even if i´ts nearly getting killed.

    In this case, it may be getting you thankful of your own life going on, instead of ending there.

    Also, that DOESN´T mean doing bad things is good, just that you can get something good out of it. (this is to prevent misunderstandings from anybody)

    “Maybe thankful means appreciative*; glad that, unlike others, we escaped this fate.”

    *and this would be good for guys with low self esteems

    Also, who is coyote?

    Also(again), thanks for collaborating to my thought list

    Also (again again) For everybody:

    – Don´t be afraid

    – Be happy and enjoy the common things of your life, embrace and contemplate them with and open heart.

    – Have a open mind

  5. Maybe it was to make you aware.

    Both, good or bad things, that happen to us, may do something good in our lives, even if i´ts nearly getting killed.

    Maybe it was because the materials that attach the thing to the wall had grown weak.

    And if there is an interventionist God, what about the people who do get killed? Simply his mysterious ways?

    Coyote is a Trickster, though I think he’s probably actually a cat.
