Am drawn to circling death not because it's pleasant. But death attracts attention because it's intractable, invincible, ineluctable. There's no way out. Brooding on the inevitable fate of those who cluster within our hearts narrows our focus and reintensifies the awareness of the finitude of opportunities we have with them. Bearing in mind the ticking of the clock makes us draw them even closer, hold them ever tighter.
