Death: The event that terminates life. Thats what youd find if you looked up death in the dictionary. Along with five other definitions that basically mean the same thing. If you like me had decided upon a dictionary that you could club someone to death with, youd also find all the sayings and names to do with death. In fact in my dictionary death takes up nearly half the page. We dont think about it. We dont talk about it. Yet it takes up half a page in my weapon of a dictionary. Whilst Debauchery a few words down being; excessive sensual indulgence something that almost consumes our society takes up less than one line. If you think about it, death is as important as life. You cant have one without the other. When my wife got cancer I found myself thinking about death a lot. What it meant, what it could mean. But I knew that it was something I couldnt let happen.
