Maybe reincarnation is not so bad
We sure are a lot alike when we are born. People like to say we are all equal, but things change as we grow older. People just don’t think alike. Look at the politics today. We are so far apart that there is no middle.
We also think differently about what happens when we pass away. Some think that the ashes to ashes and dust to dust are all there is. Some believe in heaven and hell. Heaven seems to be a real nice concept that I would wish to ascribe to. My problem is that you have to pass through the pearly gates. If there is a gate, then there must be a wall around heaven. To pass through the pearly gates you have to be vetted by someone who has a big book with your name and all about you. I don’t think I can pass.
Reincarnation may be the thing for me. I like fish, so maybe I could come back as an eagle or an osprey. I’m already halfway there. I’m already an old buzzard. Bill Bartlett, Tall Timbers
