I visited my mother, I had not seen her in two years. We spoke long hours into the night. In her quite voice she said, 'I am on the pathway of dying'. She wasn't sad, she spoke with a voice of understanding her mortal life. I then realized, we are all on this path and theres no way out but forward. She also said to me, 'in quietness and confidence shall be your strength'. She is fine and I am a little bit wiser.
