a limited timeless sphere.
Death takes us out of this limited space and allows us to

Is it our connection - relationship - to those who have died
that keeps us in a constant state of emotional upheaval?

walk again through life, searching for meanings.
Sometimes this search leads us into new careers or on
different paths towards attempting to fill gaps and
emptiness left in our lives by death.
Everything is okay when we meet death head on, there are
no right or wrong things to be doing.
No right or wrong ways to behave - each one decides within,
what their reaction will be; albeit, instantaneously, and
