Some days are better than others. If you focus on the negative, you’ll see it as negative. If you focus on the balance, life is balanced and if you focus on the good, life is good. No matter how you view it, it beats the alternatives. The world is what we look for.

  1. Searching for an answer

    “Why can’t the afterlife have google?” I muttered to myself as I looked around the library. The Steward had referred to it as ‘the reading room,’ but he was being modest.

    Three stories of book cases reaching from floor to ceiling. I was almost afraid to ask to see the card catalog as I took it all in. I didn’t even know where to begin. At least the odds were they’d have something on the subject of crossing between worlds.

    As I moved towards the reading tables, I caught a few titles and realized, google and YouTube had at least influenced the collection. 207 cat videos; Stupid dog tricks and television parodies appeared on the spines as I passed by.

    I started to ask for a book, and the attendant quickly shushed me, and handed me one book. I started to object but instead of helping me, the attendant opened the book and put it on the table for me to read— I looked, and somehow she had opened it up to the topic I was thinking off.

    Stunned, I sat down and started to read, and as my research branched out to other topics, they appeared on the following pages.

    Who knew. Google had made it to the afterlife… just… different… and if anything, more cat videos. Who knew?
