If you are reading this you are alive. You are living. Congratulations! But you are also dying. All of us are. We are one breath closer to that moment of taking our last breath. Living is not just breathing, heart beating, blood flowing and body functioning. Living is what we do and can do while we are occupying space above ground. The stories, poems and prosetry in this book are about either living or dying or both, because everything, in every moment, is about living or dying. It’s not about the fact we are still pumping blood, it’s what we do and who we are while blood is pumping.
